Rosewood AKTION Club Hosts Easter Basket Workshop on April 1

No Foolin' - Free Beanie Animals to First 150

When is the annual ‘Hippity Hop Easter Basket Workshop’ more “egg-citing” than ever? When it happens on April Fool’s Day, which it does this year!

Rosewood Miracle Workers AKTION Club is hosting the 7th Annual “Hippity Hop Easter Basket Workshop” on April 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Rosewood Activity Center, 1607 Main Street, Great Bend, adjacent to Rosewood Gallery.

During the workshop, children can create their own Easter baskets, decorate Easter eggs, and participate in other fun activities, like coloring Easter pages. The Easter Bunny will make a special appearance, and children can take photos with him. Families have the option of taking free cell phone photos, or pay $3 to receive a printed photo with the Easter Bunny.

The first 150 children who attend will receive a TY Beanie Baby animal. Children can also enter prize drawings. Following the workshop, drawing winners will be notified.

There is a donation request of $5 per basket for participants, which helps cover the cost of materials for the workshop. Any other proceeds raised from the workshop go toward Rosewood AKTION Club efforts in organizing future community projects.

“This year, it is a double celebration because we get to bring Easter fun to Children on April Fool’s Day,” said Rosewood AKTION Club sponsor Frankie Pelster. “Our AKTION Club members are geared up for this year’s doubly fun event and look forward to seeing all the children and families having a great time at the workshop. Of course, we hope children will come to say hello to the Easter Bunny.”

Rosewood AKTION Club is an affiliate of the national Kiwanis organization that promotes service in action for people with developmental disabilities. The area club allows Rosewood clients to be actively involved in the community and to positively impact the lives of others.
