Dear friends of the market,
Easter Saturday, March 22, was a big success. In the morning we had the Easter egg hunt, attended by kids from the local school and in the afternoon the bicycle beauty pageant. We were happy to give out toys such as hula hoops, bike bells and helmets, street chalk, and bubble machines. I drove around like mad in the days prior to the events of that Saturday picking up and drooping off eggs, toys, fruit, and anything else we needed.
Big thanks go out to everyone whose involvement was instrumental in bringing Easter events to local Drew Elementary kids: Roy Zuppardo, of Zuppardo’s Supermarket for providing 15 dozen eggs, Reggie Lawson for boiling and dyeing the eggs, Dr. Denese Shervington for her generous donation to allow purchase of the toys, Kina Joshua for organizational help, and of course, the volunteers who helped judge the bike contest and helped hide Easter eggs. From all of us at the market thanks go out to the patrons, vendors, and volunteers for making Easter Saturday a hit!
