Easter eggs, baskets and mad hatters

Checking out the giveaway loot at the AJC Easter Blast.

Hopping like bunnies at the AJC Easter Blast.

Easter weekend was busy in the Tri-Community. On Friday kids and their parents enjoyed coloring Easter eggs at Family First in Oracle. Each kid took some eggs and goodies home with them and enjoyed a nice lunch.

On Saturday the Easter Bunny with help from the San Pedro Valley Lions Club hid hundreds of eggs at the Mammoth Little League Baseball Park. The smiling kids covered the field looking to fill their baskets. On behalf of all the children that came to the Easter Egg Hunt in Mammoth, the San Pedro Valley Lions Club would like to thank all the people and businesses for their donations that made it all possible. The donors included La Casita, Mammoth Lumber, Patsy Large, The Corker, Judge Arnold Estrada, Town of Mammoth, Mammoth Firemen’s Fund, Senior Citizens Group, Mammoth Fire Department and members of the San Pedro Valley Lions Club.

In San Manuel at the El Centro Youth Center there were raffles, games, food vendors and information booths. It was the third annual Easter Blast sponsored by Adelante Juntos. There was also an Easter egg hunt with the kids looking all over the B Avenue School grounds for the eggs and candy. A lot of kids went home happy. There were lots of Easter baskets won in the raffles, great food and fun!

At the San Manuel Elks Club, the Queen of Hearts was late, late for her important date, at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. In fact everyone was late including the Mad Hatter who never showed up. Perhaps it was not everyone’s cup of tea.

On Easter Sunday the church bell rang at the Oracle Union Church sending the children scurrying from flower to flower across the church grounds looking for the wrapped candy and eggs. They filled their baskets with the colorful eggs and went home happy.
