Egg Hunt
The time of the Egg Hunt, a local, parent organized event on the western hill of southern Ft. Tryon Park, is approaching. Traditionally, 2 or 3 parents have taken on the role of coordinating this small event with advice and input from previous coordinators. It is an effort that takes about 5 hours of pre-organizing (collecting some "start-up" donations from local friends, ordering eggs and favors from Oriental Tradingn Co., hosting a gathering of parents to stuff eggs- really a wine and cheese party in disguise!), then day of event coordinating (hiding eggs, passing out a donation jar, and announcing 3 separate age groups for shifts of egg hunting.) This is the job in a nutshell.



I encourage all to participate in the event as it is a fun neighborhood gathering, and hope that a few people step up to coordinate this year's effort. Each previous year the coordinator took notes on budget, supplies, hunting format etc, in order to make the next year's coordinators' job easier.



Contact me directly if you are interested in coordinating and I will put you in touch with last year's coordinator Lori Hoffman for info. Thanks Lori for last year's great effort!

Needed for the Nature Center
For the Tuesday playgroup and the Wednesday Preschool on the Planet:

1) Throw rugs. Used is fine as long as they can be cleaned by a good
scrubbing, which we're happy to do. We had 3 but are down to 1 after
an unfortunate dog-poop incident, and we have a lot of crawlers at
playgroup.

2) A portable CD player. The quality is unimportant, and nothing needs
to work but the CD part and the speakers.

Thanks to everyone who donated the many wonderful toys and books. We
have plenty to keep all of the tots busy for a good long time!

Jennifer
