On your marks, get set, glow!


Whether they’re glow-in-the-dark eggs or golf ball eggs, children are always ready for an Easter egg hunt!

DROPOUT-Easter-girlThis Saturday, from 6 to 9 p.m., the Family Matters Club has planned a Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt and Carnival at Holiday Harbor. Next Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Jr. Women’s Club will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt and Carnival at Holiday Harbor, with the Men’s Golf Club providing colorful golf ball “eggs.”

This Saturday’s event will offer free carnival games, crafts, face-painting, a glow-in-the-dark Easter egg hunt and a big-screen showing of the animated Easter flick, “Hop.” Food, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase, and there will be a drawing for prizes.

Rabbit Rescue, Inc. will be on hand with bunnies for the kiddos to pet and for parents to take pictures.

The Family Matters Club also is planning a fundraiser for a young Canyon Lake boy with cerebral palsy. Founder Shawna Bowen says, “We will be selling foam Easter eggs for whatever amount you can donate. Then we will have you write a message to Corbin on the egg. After the event we will deliver the eggs to him and make the donation to him, along with an additional donation just from the club.”

High schoolers needing volunteer hours are encouraged to help out. Canyon Lake Family Matters is a President’s Award provider, so volunteer hours can count towards this award. Call Jenny Teperson at 951-552-0055 or email clfmclub@aol.com.

Easter Egg Hunt and Carnival

Next Saturday, March 26, the Jr. Women’s Club will host the traditional Easter Egg Hunt and Carnival that has been at Holiday Harbor for many years.

What makes this egg hunt special is that there are specially-marked golf balls that the children race to find. The finders win prizes! Children are divided into age categories so the little ones don’t get overrun by the older children.

In addition, children will be able to buy a wristband for $10 that provides unlimited access to bounce houses, games, crafts, face-painting and more. There will be music and vendors selling food and merchandise. Parents will want to bring their cameras to take pictures of their children with the Easter Bunny and Easter Chick.

This event also could use the help of teenage volunteers. To volunteer or for more information, contact Alissa Rackstraw at 951-265-4325 or Heather Rose at 951-591-8168.
