More than 100 children and accompanying adults attended the Backus American Legion Auxiliary’s annual Kids Easter Party on Saturday, April 12, where they played a variety of games, participated in an Easter egg hunt, took home prizes and goodie bags and had a complimentary lunch.

A crew of auxiliary Peter Cottontail volunteers prepared goodie bags with apples, pencils and candy and operated a fish pond, bunny ball throw and ring toss. The kids turned in their Easter eggs for a variety of prizes and completed a craft project, an Easter decoration to take home.

Hot dogs, brownies, chips, Easter cookies and soft drinks were served at lunch.

The party’s financial sponsors included the Legion post, auxiliary and the Backus Lions.
