Easter balancing act
Smith, 4, keeps the egg from hitting the floor during the kids Easter
party at MERC Hall in Maitland on Saturday afternoon. Youngsters took
part in a range of activities that included an egg hunt as well as
crafts, games and snacks. Volunteers with the Maitland Education and
Recreation Corporation hosted the event; donations to MERC Hall’s Raise
the Roof campaign were accepted. The Maitland facility will serve as
the venue for the South Grenville Guild of
Fine Art’s 2014 show on April 25-27.
