GRISSWELL: Lone Butte hosts Easter Bunny, events

Lone Butte community happenings

Easter weekend was a busy time at the hall this year.

The weekend started with the Lone Butte Easter Craft Fair on Saturday, April 16. Hosted by Lone Butte Organics, Paper Cranes for Hope and Carmen’s Cariboo Crafts, the fair was packed with both vendors and visitors with a huge variety of wares. Adding to the relaxed mood of the hall was music by The Blue Wranglers. It was nice to see so many people out and enjoying themselves.

The Easter Bunny came for a visit Sunday, courtesy of the Lone Butte-Horse Lake Community Association. Kids, parents and volunteers filled the hall for the fun event. After a colouring contest, the youngsters moved to the egg decorating table. Eight and a half dozen eggs turned into personal works of art in their creative hands. Then it was off to the main event – the Easter egg hunt!

While all this was going on, the Easter Bunny wandered through the crowd, pausing to visit and have photos taken with the children. All in all, a delightful Sunday afternoon.
