Volunteers Needed for Easter Festival

Dear Friends,

It is that time of year again for our Easter Festival. This year's event will take place on Saturday March 22nd from 2pm to 4pm on the plaza at 135th street park entrance. The purpose of this email is to remind you of this event that has been a big hit in the neighborhood for the past couple of years but also to appeal to you for help. The Friends group is in great need of volunteers to help make this event as memorable as in years past. Here is a list of items that are the most critical for volunteers:

* Raffle items - suggestions for raffle prizes
* Raffle baskets - someone willing to put together baskets to be raffled off. Shawn used flower themed baskets last year that had bulbs for planting
* Easter Bonnet Decorating - helping kids paint and decorate their Easter bonnets
* Cupcake Decorating
o volunteers for baking or buying cupcakes for decorating
(I figure we will need enough for a hundred kids or so)
o icing for decoration
o sprinkles
o jellybeans
* Face painting
o painters needed
o face paints
o face sponges
* Other Supplies
o cups
o napkins
o hand sanitizer
o face wipes
o plates
* Easter Bunny (funnest job ever)
o Someone to put on the costume and parade around for the kids. I did it last year and I am willing to do it again for a little bit but it would be nice to have someone to rotate with.

>>Get the word out: a flyer in MS Word is available for print out and posting at:

Please let Josh Greenberg at know if you are available to volunteer at

We look forward to seeing you all on the 22nd!

Thank you,

Friends of St. Nicholas Park
