2016 Raymondale Annual Egg Hunt

A lovely sunny day greeted the egg hunters, parents, guests, and teen helpers as the annual Raymondale egg hunt got underway in several front yards along Add Drive. The founders of the Raymondale egg hunt, Wanda and Christy Nolan, were on hand for the festivities too!

There were lots of wee ones ready to gather the colorful eggs...

With the help of the older teens who hid the eggs in easy and not so easy hiding places, the little ones were off to search and gather!

Many THANKS to teen volunteers Mira, Tate, Grace, Lawrence, Martha and Nico for their prep work, to all four host families, and to the Wroblewskis for organizing. And to Dona Seracino for providing pastries and Mary Cogbill who supplied coffee.

A wonderful day to welcome spring ro Raymondale!

Good Neighbors Tackle Luria Park Trash

A couple of weeks ago the Byrd family (of Brad Street) headed an impromptu clean up of Luria Park. After recent heavy rains and snow melt, piles of debris and trash collected in thick piles along the new boardwalk near the streams. Using the Raymondale on-line announce group, Josh Byrd invited anyone who had free time to join them. Broyhill Park even joined in the effort!

Like so many of us, the Byrd family understands how important Luria Park is to our neighborhood, and by example they proved that we are all custodians of our environment. We thank the Byrd family and the other wonderful volunteers who came out. And if you are in Luria Park and find some trash, pick it up and place it in one of the convenient receptacles in the park. Happy Spring!
