Little kids, big kids, grown up kids, the Easter Bunny loves you all and comes only once a year to Topanga (at least to TCC!)
Come and join us for
• Egg Games,
• Egg relays and egg hunts
• Easter crafts,
• The Crazy Easter Bonnet contest
• And, of course, an appearance by the Easter Bunny.
Easter Sunday, March 27, Starting at 10am
Egg hunts separated for ages 4 and under and 5+ starting around 10:30.
Bring your own basket and large spoon for relay races. Please put your name on anything you are bringing to share.
In addition, we are expecting many young egg hunters and as a nod to our Club history, are hoping for at least 10 dozen hard boiled eggs to be donated that morning!
TCC is happy to accept donations of used or unwanted plastic eggs lying in your garage or storage space for the hunt. To donate in advance and/or to volunteer to help, please email email@example.com.
As part of TCC’s Zero Waste goals, we have purchased “eco-eggs” and have an egg exchange planned for the children. After the hunt they may turn in their plastic eggs (empty, of course!) in exchange for a prize! We plan to reuse the plastic eggs we have year after year.
And a special addition this year—The post Easter Egg Hunt BBQ. Bring food to grill! Join us in a wonderful community celebration and barbecue.
Next Session starts March 14th!
The cost is $220/4 weeks unless you bring a friend that signs up for the full 4 weeks, and then you pay $180!! You can make payments either via Paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org and send it as a gift. Or you can make a check payable to Julia Lynch.
