Holding their baskets tight, nearly 60 children greeted the Spring Bunny at The R-Club at Rhodes Ranch recreation center.
The bunny made its entrance by sliding down one of the water slides before hopping over to start the morning’s activities in a spring celebration, sponsored by the Community Events Committee with members of the Women’s Club.
“We set up two areas for the children to gather eggs – one for the younger kids and one for the older kids,” said Virginia Kaplan, program manager at The R-Club. “The egg hunt started at 10 a.m. and was over in a matter of minutes. The kids really impressed us with their speed.”
After the egg hunt, families were given lemonade and cookies before the games began.
The bunny posed for pictures and handed out small prizes to the children.
“There was a beanbag toss, a water balloon toss and a game where the children carried eggs on a spoon,” Kaplan said. “We tried to find activities that would appeal to different age groups and all of the kids were winners in these games. We were very thankful for the great weather and huge turnout for this resident event.”
