Easter in the Park

The kids went home with arm loads of candies, goodies and toys

Throngs of excited children swarmed Kinnaird Park for the annual Easter in the Park celebration Sunday. The kids went home with arm loads of candies, goodies and toys. The A&W Bear was on hand to cheer the kids on. After the field was cleared of treats, drawings were held for Easter baskets, and two grand prize bicycles donated by Gericks and the Sacred Ride. The event was put on by Shoppers Simply Pharmacy, whose staff has hosted the event since 2006 when the pharmacy was owned by Paragon. Additional sponsors were Lordco, Castlegar Interact Club, EZ Rock, Shoppers Drug Mart.  Store Operations Manager Michelle Dawson said, “It’s an amazing event.  The field goes from chaos to spotless in 10 minutes. I love to be involved every year.” Pharmacist Valay Rajgor summed up the spirit of the event, “It was a great day!”
