SPARTA, NJ – The Sparta Library and field behind the Mohawk Avenue School were overtaken by young children on Saturday, hunting eggs and enjoying breakfast with the Easter Bunny. Outside the library, goats and chickens delighted the children as well as the pony available for riding.
Inside volunteers Christel Schuhmann and Fredericka “Ricki” Link helped serve the breakfast. Guitar Bob sang and played dance music for the pre-school children.
Sparta student volunteers Brianna Cannici and Katie Campion were Easter Bunny helpers. Many of the little ones and their families had their photo taken with the bunny.
Sparta UNICO had 3000 eggs for their 20th Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Most were filled with candy. Twenty eggs had tickets to win goody filled baskets and three lucky children found eggs with tickets for the grand prizes. Dawn Corbo of Weichert Realtors donated three bicycles again this year.
