It started bright and early with the Easter Egg Hunt in Bryant Park an annual event with some changes this year that made it truly memorable.  The staging was a bit different so that parents did not have to wait in the sweltering heat.  The now traditional Bonnet Parade went  without a hitch. What was that change?  The children were let into the patch golden eggs already hidden.  3 shiny gold eggs per patch this year,  gold leafed by the Lake Worth Art League.  Then as the kids waited one of the staff came into the patch with a huge  box and emptied all  the colored eggs.Thanks Leisure Services,  I have never heard the sound of such delight from kids,  Parents laughing. it was joy all around.     The next event was mounted by our Children’s Librarian Ms Cindy Ansell with the assistance from the Friends of the Lake Worth Library and many many volunteers. This took place at the former shuffleboard courts.  Again many hands on activities,  along with a guest, star artist illustrator Edel Rodriquez.  Also a busy day for our Mayor and Commissioners.

Seen here with the Lake Worth Art League crew is our own Mayor Pam, who made the rounds.   Edel  was awesome, for five days he visited  our area schools, prior to appearing at Biblioarte.  I got to listen to his presentation and was very impressed.  Spoke about his early years as a budding artist on to Pratt Institute  NY, for formal training  and on to his successful career as a book illustrator, Newsweek and Time cover fame.  He took questions from young audience  members and never spoke down to them. Awesome person.  Thank you Cindy Ansell for bringing such a gift to our City of Lake Worth.
