The senior citizens who attended the Easter party enjoyed a delicious cake, bonnet/hat contest, a visit with the Easter Bunny and fellowship. The highlight of the day was a visit from the Easter Bunny himself. Senior citizens snapped pictures and took time to hug Peter Rabbit's neck as he made his way through the center. Mem- bers of the city's recreational board thoroughly enjoyed throwing the party and have already begun to plan for next year's Easter celebration at the Senior Citizen Center. On Saturday, April 3, the sounds of laughter and children squealing echoed across Lake Jackson as they ran with Easter baskets in hand grabbing every colored egg in sight. The First Annual Florala Recreational Board Extravaganza was a huge suc- cess. After an egg hunt and being served hot dogs, chips, soda and Easter cake chil- dren enjoyed competing for chocolate bunnies in the egg walk, egg toss and hula hoop contest.
