Easter egg hunt in Spences Bridge this weekend

Mavourneen Varcoe-Ryan reports on the comings and goings on in Spences Bridge.

Spring is sprung! Trees are budding, the forsythia is blooming, the days are getting longer; next thing we’ll be complaining about the heat!

Hopefully the weather will be just right next weekend as Sunday, March 27 will see the annual Easter Egg Hunt and community picnic. The Spences Bridge Fire Department, with the assistance of the community club, will host this popular event. It all starts at 11:00am at the school, with the children looking for chocolate eggs; then there will be lots of games (three-legged races, egg toss, sack races, etc. ), face painting, a bake sale, and fun for everyone along with a wiener roast. Special thanks for the financial assistance of Cook’s Ferry, the SBID, the Log Cabin Pub, Bait’s Motel, and all the individuals who made donations!

Don’t forget Talent Night on March 31 at 7:00pm at the hall. Bring your singing, skits, poetry, or musical talents for a night of low-key, no-pressure fun and entertainment!

Bingo continues on the first Monday of each month. Doors open at 5:30pm, and there are lots of games and chances to win all evening. The concession is always open! Come try your hand at winning a few dollars and have some fun with friends and neighbours.

It’s very exciting to see the support and enthusiasm for developing a park at the old school. With park status, grants are available to develop the site with all sorts of ideas: a playground, a band shell, walking paths, and many other amenities for the whole community! Thanks to everyone who is committing time and energy to make this park idea a reality for Spences Bridge.

Soup Day is continuing every Wednesday at noon at the hall. There’s no charge; just come have a bowl of soup and mix and mingle with friends and neighbours. If anyone would like to make the soup one week, sign up at the Post Office. Thanks to everyone who works to keep this weekly event going!

Zumba will be continuing Fridays at 10:00am at the hall, with a  $7.00 drop-in charge. It’s a wonderful way to improve your level of fitness and balance, suitable for young, middle, and old ages; you can work it at your own level; and it’s FUN!
