Easter Party 2010

We served over 300 children, plus parents, at our Children's Easter Party this year. Families enjoyed free hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages, Frito Lays chips and a beverage while they colored their eggs. With such a large number attending the party, we took families in shifts. As soon as a family ate, colored eggs, visited the Easter Bunny, received an Easter Basket and left, we cleared the table and a new family was immediately seated. It seemed the line waiting to come in the door would never end.

It was a very busy night for our volunteers who cooked, served food and cleaned up many messes (which we expected). I was grateful for the help we received from Officer Burdick's Volunteers from the Butternut Community Police Center. They were a tremendous help. We would not have been able to keep up with the families without them.

I am so fortunate to have such wonderful bunch of people who give of their time and donations to support our programs. Thank you, to several dentists who donated toothbrushes and toothpaste. You made it possible for us to include them in every child's Easter Basket. And thank you to all who donated items or funds to help make our party possible.

God Bless,
Officer Clarke
