Unit 28 hosts Blessing of the Animals and Easter Egg Hunt

April 5, 2013

A beautiful day brought a large crowd to the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 28’s Blessing of the Animals and Easter Egg Hunt. More than 25 animals, among them a rabbit, were blessed by Pastor Judith Moller-Gavlick of the Grace of God Lutheran Church. Moller-Gavlick also provided crosses for the animals' collars.

More than 50 youngsters ages 2-12 scattered for plastic filled eggs in each of three baskets supplied by the auxiliary, as well as gift certificates.

Shown with Easter treasures are in back (l-r) Zoe Downey; Jackie Rooney, Auxiliary Children and Youth chair; and R.J. Clark. In front are K.J. Gibbs, Brian Alfonso, Ian Hicks and James McGovern.
