What To Do This Weekend - Get in a Festive Easter Mood & Be Charitable

There are lots of fun, Easter-themed activities on the go this weekend, as well as at least two charitable events - take your pick :-)

Get into a Festive Easter mood:
  • take the kids to an Easter Story-Time Session at Michael Donovan Library tomorrow (Friday) at 3:30 pm - sit back and watch the awe on their faces as they listen. Don't forget to borrow a book or two before you leave!
  • Nothing beats a Spring Tea, Craft & Bake Sale! Visit the one at St. James United, 2-4 PM Saturday.
  • On Sunday, head over to the Geo Centre for their Environmentally Friendly Easter Celebration, and participate in Origami Workshops, Face Painting, and make Recycled Paper Seeded Bookmarks. From 2-4PM. Also, for that afternoon (12 to 5PM) there will be free admission to the main exhibits!


Events in support of great causes:

  • tonight, at 6:30, there is a Japan Fundraiser at the A.C. Hunter Library - contact information is in the calendar, or see post here for more details. 
  • Saturday (April 16th), visit Reach Out for Rylee, an online Facebook auction in support of this little boy with a rare medical condition. Proceeds will go towards expenses related to his treatment in the U.S. There are many wonderful items up for bids: here's a sneak-peek:
