         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons

Saturday, March 26, 2016:  Volunteers from the Brainerd Rotary Club gathered at Lum Park in Brainerd to put on the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
It is a Brainerd Parks and Recreation event, but the money and manpower are provided by Rotary.
They filled bags with candy.  Some 500 bags to be exact.
Even retired people helped in this effort.
Paula is Project Coordinator for the Easter Egg Hunt.  She is a busy lady.
SOME Rotarians were found in the break room downing donuts.  SOME young volunteers were discovered doing the same thing!
Brainerd and Baxter royalty showed up to the delight of the attendees.....especially Mark!
Thousands of plastic Easter eggs were distributed across the park so kids could hunt for them.

Then the photographs started.  First with the face-through sign and then with the Easter Bunny.

The bunny even got a high-five that day.
Then the hunt began.  Kids headed out to collect eggs.
Then the eggs were brought back. 
The reward was bags of candy.  Lots of happy kids that day.

The Easter Bunny's next stops were at area nursing and assisted living homes.  The bunny was a surprise and and was warmly welcomed.
  Finally someone thought to offer the "hungry" bunny a carrot.  Nice going!

Quote of the day:    You just never know what is going to happen next around here.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
