If you were not at the Crofton Elementary School on Saturday, you missed out on some good weather and a lot of fun. The Crofton Civic Association held its annual Easter egg hunt for the kids, old and young.
The weather was about as much as recreation assistant Sue Bents could hope for. The sun was shining, and the temperature was perfect. Children were put into one of three age categories and sent in searchof hidden eggs.
No child left the hunt with an empty basket. Cookies and punch helped bring the day to a satisfying close. An Easter egg toss and a contest to guess the number of jelly beans in a jar were held.
If your organization has not yet sent in the forms to be part of the second annual old-fashioned Fourth of July, you need to do so soon, as spaces are filling up.
Booth space and the option to sell the same food as last year or something new is on a first-come, first-served basis.
