The Interlakes Lions’ Easter party on April 19 was a super success with more than three dozen noisy, happy children.
Lion Carolyn Charlton commented on Pat Lytton’s “amazing ability” with the
games, and wonderful help from local youth Vanet McKenzie and Sergei DeVries, as well as the Easter Bunny, aka Nicky Volonte.
The older children helped the little ones find the eggs, and everyone loved the little pizzas and drinks.
Congratulations go to Deka’s Danielle Brassington, who turns 11 on May 10, on getting a “perfect” score at South Cariboo Rhythmic Gymnastics Club’s recent testing day.
Birthday bubbly goes to Linda Bishop, Shelly Durand, Donna Jarvis, Tyler Durand,
