We had lots of family fun at the annual Easter EGGstravaganza gathering for this Windingwalk community. It is an unhurried time of connection and just plain fun. In addition to the fun EGG HUNT which this year served between 700-800 children! We also had the opportunity to tell children (and their parents) about the REAL Easter story about Jesus. There were children who had never heard the story before! We met thousands of people from our community and our team had lots of great conversations. We got to tell the Concordia story over and over. We answered questions about our work with the church, the preschool, our community and in our newest partnership with Children of the Nations International. That was really fun and a great way to show Concordia’s heart. We packed 2,000 meals for children in Malawi. We will pack an additional 8,000 meals on July 27th. Put that on your calendar.
OUR BUNNY RUN was a blast. Young children and their parents got to run through an obstacle course! B2be sports and wellness sponsored the fun run. Our young orange clad runners took this very seriously!
We had about 40 booths. Business sponsors, restaurants, non profits. Together we were able to put on this fun day! Thank you B2be, Dr. Blanca of Pediatrics in Paradise, Chick-fil-A, Our Hometown, Kid Ventures and Jump and Rock who were our platinum sponsors!
The beautiful blue canopies came from the Naval Base. Can you believe thanks to our wonderful volunteers, that we broke down the canopies, tables and chairs in 18 minutes? Our event ended at noon and we were unloading on the Naval Base at 12:45pm Wonderful effort by so many.
We had between 700-800 children for the Egg Hunt! The under two group began their hunt fine and then the other three areas all charged their egg hunt areas! It was all good.
