Annual children’s Easter party a huge success
The Children’s Easter Party held at the Thurman town hall on Saturday, April 12 was a huge success. Over 50 children attended the annual event with their families and enjoyed coloring and decorating eggs and playing pin the tail on the bunny. After every child had an opportunity to decorate their eggs they scurried off to the recreational field for an Easter egg hunt. There were 750 candy filled plastic eggs to find and Thurman children were diligent in recovering each and every one of them.
Once the children returned with their goodies - and before they started eating them – the buffet of food was opened and everyone lined up for their serving of chicken fingers, baked ziti, veggies and dip and a variety of confections.
The next activity was the raffle drawing for the assorted Easter baskets; there were three divisions, Newborn to 4 years old was won by Emily Prosser and Kurt Arnold; 5 to 8 years old division was won by Kyla Arnold and Bailey Ackley; in the 9 to 12 year old division baskets were awarded to Jacalyn Carson and Eli Burkhardt. The candy count was won by Cameron Carpenter who guessed the exactly correct amount. There were six door prizes to be awarded and they were won by Brian Burkhardt, Emily Moore, Brooke Prosser, Silas Tucker and finally, Nolan Templeton – which, I swear I had nothing to do with. Kaden Arnold and her sister Kyla won the Easter bonnet contest, as they were the only little girls who wore them; they were beautiful dressed in their matching lavender dresses.
Special recognition should go out to Nancy and Don Decker, Bob Shepler and family, Mary Eddy, Amber Herrman and her friend Cassi, Andy Templeton, Jackie Mundy, Sally Feihel, Katherine Chamber and the Warren County Youth court kids.
