Buena Bunnies 2013

Buena Bunnies 2013

Our annual Buena Bunnies is scheduled for April 6th at St. Mary of the Lake Church at Buena and Sheridan. This annual event has been a favorite for many and is a great way to meet new people and provide a happy Easter for many young children by creating fun Easter baskets.

What you need to know:

What:   Buena Bunnies
Date:    Sunday, April 6, 2014
Place:  St. Mary of the Lake social hall (at the back of the church.  Come in the side door on Buena)
Time:  2pm

We will have lots of materials to work with, but we always need more.  If you can bring any of the following, it would be a big help: baskets, plastic grass, plastic eggs, small toys, candy, cellophane, or any item that you think would be fun to have in an Easter basket.

The finished baskets will be judged and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be announced.
