I saw them! I did! The very first crocuses of Spring! And although they may very well be covered in snow next week, they bring with them the reminder that Spring, and Easter, really are right around the corner.
Want some “eggs-cellent” entertainment for the little ones? There are two different Easter egg hunts to keep the kiddies occupied and happy. The Jaycees sponsored egg hunt will take place on Saturday, March 23rd, at 10:00 AM. It is at a new location this year – at the field behind Orange Avenue School. Admission is free, and is open to all kids ages 0 – 9. They are asking only for donations of non-perishable food items for the Cranford Family Care pantry. That very same day, at 10:30 AM, there is also an egg hunt given by The Friends of Colin Maher, at Hanson Park, for children 10 and under, with proceeds benefitting Ewing sarcoma cancer research. Registration for this hunt is $8.00 before March 15th, and $15.00 after that date. Visit their website for registration and more information at friendsofcolin.org.
More of a “rabbitual” Easter celebrator? There’s a few opportunities to visit with the Easter bunny, as well. On Saturday, March 30th, the Easter bunny will be at the gazebo at Centennial Village from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM to take pictures with children. Earlier that same morning, at 9:00 AM, families can enjoy breakfast with the Easter bunny at The Garlic Rose. Reservations are required for this event, so be sure to call (908)276-5749 to make yours.
So don your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, and enjoy a community Easter in Cranford!
