Easter Egg Hunt

Not sunny but at least dry with cars parked all along 113th Avenue. Many, many children enjoying the free easter egg hunt offered annually by the Whonnock Community Association. Thanks to organizers Yukiko, Sandra, Sheryl, Shirley and the other volunteers who gave their time to make this happen. A special thanks also to Rick (the Easter Bunny). The picture shows Sandra with her glorious Easter Bonnet at the table with the special surprises handed out to kids finding something else that just poker chips.
