It was another successful hunt for the Pender Betterment Group! Tots of all ages came to visit the Easter Bunny and to find their eggs.  Many children came out despite the chilly weather to find the most eggs.  They enjoyed receiving many great prizes.  Thanks again to the many Pender Public School clubs that helped make this another successful event.Easter Bunny Comes to Town
