March 23, 1993|By SUE HALLER

You're no bunny 'til some bunny loves you.

Sue Bents, Crofton's recreation assistant, is making plans to welcome the Easter Bunny with open arms when it hops into town April 3 as part of the annual community festivities.

The Easter hunt, on the grounds of Crofton Elementary School, for those colored eggs will begin at noon and last until 1:30 p.m.

The big bunny will be joined by his good friend Barney, star of television and shopping malls. Youngsters will be able to meet the purple dinosaur and have their pictures taken.

Activities also will include an Easter bonnet contest and jelly bean guess. Check out the jelly bean jar in advance at Town Hall or make your best guess the day of the big hunt.


The Crofton Association of Retired Persons will hold its election of officers at its business meeting tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. at the Bowie Elks Club on Route 450.

Paul Newman, of National Geographic magazine, will display a suit of armor during his talk, "Armor of the Middle Ages." Lunch will be served after the business meeting and program.


Top hat, white tie and tails.

Basic Ballroom dance classes are back, taught by Spero Pappafotis.

The lessons will be given at Crofton Elementary School from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. starting March 31. Registration forms are available at Town Hall, and will be accepted until the class is full or until Friday.
