Last Saturday's Spring Egg Hunt A Success

Cara, Laurelhurst Community Center Recreation Coordinator, sent us a follow-up email about last Saturday's Spring Egg Hunt - lots of exicted kids and lots of great volunteer helping to make the annual event a success:
A HUGE thank you to the many community members and volunteers who donated candy, plastic eggs, baked goods as well as personal time to make the Laurelhurst Egg Hunt a fun and successful event!  Given that the Community Center has limited funds and personnel, the community once again stepped up to make a memorable day for the families of the Laurelhurst neighborhood. 
An estimated 300 kids along with their families enjoyed the mad dash for candy filled eggs and other goodies scattered throughout the park.  It was great to see neighbors enjoying the parks with their friends and family after the hunt was over as well. 
The Community Center also hosted a very successful bake sale to raised funds to help support families in need of scholarships.  Thank you to those who graciously donated to that cause. 
Photos of the event can be found on the Laurelhurst Community Center Facebook page
The Laurelhurst Community Center plans to offer more family special events throughout the year.  Events will be posted on our Facebook page as well as at the community center.
