Middle 4.5.2006

By Rick Racela

The Easter Bunny is making the rounds of Cape May County.
He’s sure to appear at the Cape May County Zoo’s “Easter Bunny in the Tropics” on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The free event will take place in the Aviary in the zoo.
Visitors will have an opportunity to have their picture taken with the popular rabbit, so bring your camera. 
The annual event, spon-sored by the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders, includes edu-cational displays, craft tables and a treat for all children.
This is the third year the county is hosting this event.
 The bunny’s next stop will be at the Museum Kids Club Easter Craft Program on Saturday at 10 a.m. This event is by regis-tration only.
Children will decorate a spring basket, and will participate in an egg scav-enger hunt.
Fee is $5 for a non-member child, $2 for a chaperone and $3 for a member child, $2 for an adult. Call 465-3535.
Breakfast with the Easter Bunny at the Wet-lands Institute will be held on April 15 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Celebrate Easter with Peter Cottontail as he hops down the marsh trail with bunny stories, games, crafts and fun.
Enjoy a continental breakfast with Peter him-self.    
This is one of their most popular events, so reserve early.
Deadline is April 13. $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers.
Don’t be late to the Rec-reation Department’s an-nual Easter Egg Hunt, which will be held on April 15 at 1 p.m. sharp.
I always stress the im-portance of getting to the Goshen Sports Complex early because once that horn blows promptly at 1 p.m., the abundance of candy and eggs just fly into the children’s baskets. You won’t get any if you’re late.
Make sure to bring a basket or bag and your camera.
Legal Secretaries of Cape May County will hold a membership drive tomorrow, 6-8 p.m., at Atkinson’s Garden Room in Court House.
Local business owners are asked to donate a gift to be auctioned off at the event. Proceeds will bene-fit the group’s scholarship fund.
