CARLYLE - On Good Friday, in conjunction with the Carlyle Library, Cornerstone Family and Youth held a very successful Easter egg hunt at the Carlyle Memorial Hall.
Over 50 families were in attendance and thoroughly entertained throughout the afternoon. Carlyle OneChurch supplied their bouncy castle, gift certificates were donated by King’s Department Store and Michael’s Coffee Shop, and the library provided some additional prizes. Raffles were held and the event raised an estimated $800.
Cornerstone Family and Youth is a non-profit, charitable organization offering positive educational and recreational programs for children, youth, young adults, and families within Carlyle and surrounding area. Recently CFY has been relocated to the Carlyle Civic Centre and is open from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday to Friday.
The proceeds from the Easter egg hunt will go towards the purchase of an indoor playground and there are additional fundraisers planned. Further details will be provided in an upcoming edition of the Observer.
