The Rotary Clubs of Goleta were out in force as volunteers helping with this year’s Easter Egg Hunt for hundreds of children at Girsh Park. The soccer fields were covered with thousands of brightly colored plastic eggs that had been stuffed with chocolate surprises.
Families come out each year to watch the children’s laughing faces as they burst onto the field with their empty baskets, eager to collect as many eggs as they can find. Before and after the Egg Hunt, the children enjoyed taking pictures with the life-size Easter Bunny, jumping in bouncers, face painters, arts and crafts, and the accordion musical clown who made the children laugh with her many magic tricks.
This is a family event enjoyed by all age groups, and it was free for all, thanks to Girsh Park and The Rotary Clubs of Goleta.
The Rotary Club of Goleta meets bimonthly at Glen Anne Golf Club’s Frog Bar & Grill Restaurant, 404 Glen Annie Road, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays. Each dinner meeting includes guest speakers and interesting programs.
