Rosewood AKTION Club Hosts Easter Basket Workshop on March 23

First 70 Children To Receive Special Prize

Rosewood Miracle Workers AKTION Club is hosting the 8th Annual “Hippity Hop Easter Basket Workshop” on March 23 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 70 children who attend will receive a special prize for their Easter baskets. 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.

“It’s hard to believe we have been bringing this event to children in our community for the past eight years,” said Rosewood AKTION Club sponsor Frankie Pelster. “It’s easily one of the favorite activities of our Rosewood AKTION Club members because of the joy they are able to bring to all the children and their families. Of course, it’s always an exciting time for children to be able to meet the Easter Bunny. We’re looking forward to a great turnout.”

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.
