The Buena Park Neighbors Association announced that its annual Buena Bunnies charitable event will be held Sat. April 8, 10:00 a.m. at the St. Mary of the Lake school hall. The school hall is located on Buena Ave. at Kenmore Ave. Parking is available in the lot on that corner, and the entrance is from the parking lot.
Buena Bunnies is an annual event. All are welcome to help make Easter baskets and fill plastic Easter eggs for neighborhood children. Approximately 20 baskets filled with toys and candy are needed this year for children of needy families who receive assistance from the St. Mary of the Lake St. Vincent De Paul Society food pantry, a Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Equally important is the need for hundreds of plastic Easter eggs to be filled with candy for the St. Mary of the Lake Easter Egg hunts which are for all young neighborhood children and held on Easter Sunday (April 16) at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on the St. Mary of the Lake church lawn, Buena Ave. at Sheridan Rd.
Donations of pre-filled plastic Easter eggs, or empty plastic Easter eggs and small candies to fill them, are needed and can be brought to St. Mary of the Lake church before or after Masses each day, or to the school hall on April 8 at 10 a.m. Supplies to fill baskets are also helpful, but please NO Easter “grass” for the baskets as we have more Easter “grass” than we need.
