Annual Easter Fun Day at Don and Anna’s

I think we got the best part of the whole week when we held our Annual Easter Fun Day from 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. Easter Sunday

Katy Dennis enjoyed a visit with the Easter Bunny at Don and Anna’s Easter Fun Day.


I think we got the best part of the whole week when we held our Annual Easter Fun Day from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Easter Sunday. The wind died down and the sun was out so bright.  We love to see the community get together and have some old fashioned fun for the whole family.

Without all our volunteers we could not put this event on. Our registration desk was cheerfully managed by Tom and Shirley Haker and Linda Gagnon this year. Our Bunny Golf volunteer Evan Reichl kept the children busy, Volunteers Cassandra Leake and Ashley Freeman face painted some originals this year, Walter Despot’s granddaughter Nora Goddard-Despot showed the children how to really blow some awesome bubbles , playing a round of Rabbit Ring Toss was volunteered by Chelsea and Jennifer Patterson, the Volunteer Easter Bunny was Rayanna Kirton, and hiding that special egg in Nana’s Maze that had your child’s name on it was done by Bundy Page’s granddaughter Alexis, and Zack and Leah Reigling.

I truly believe the highlight of this year’s event was the live bunnies that my neighbour Sue Patterson brought over. The children couldn’t get enough of playing with these bunnies. Some of the children even brought a bunny over to get their pictures taken with the Don and Anna Easter Bunny.

The aroma of the Elks barbequing those delicious hot dogs, and hamburgers made it feel like a family gathering.

Our event continues to be free of charge thanks to all our volunteers, and our co-sponsors such as Valu-Plus for the candy donation, Pharmasave for developing those free pictures, and the Review, and South Okanagan Country Radio for the support.

I would like to thank all the families that brought their children out to enjoy the morning with us.
