Springtime treasures

Conrad and Alayah check out the lambs. Carrie Johnson, Summer Friesen and Scooter were back on the streets celebrating the Easter season. Locklan and Conrad took a seat on the carriage. This time they had two beautiful lambs in tow. Kids’ minds were blown by a pony with rabbit ears, two wee lambs and chocolate eggs to boot. The three person parade was a memorable hit.  A toddler was heard to declare, “Mommy, it’s a bunny horse!”

Approximately 60 kids age 1-9 participated in the annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the McBride Elks and Royal Purple along with the Valley Museum and Archives on Saturday morning. Kids started by creating their baskets, participating in other crafts, and placing their guess for the candy count. The Easter Bunny handed out balloons and smiled for pictures. Kids 1-3 were set loose on a partitioned off section of the Elks hall for their hunt, before the older kids were given their first clue in a treasure hunt style search. Event coordinator Jana MacMaster was thrilled with the turnout. “I am glad to see so many people out,” she said. “I couldn’t have done this without all of the amazing volunteers that stepped up.”
