MAYFAIR CIVIC ASSOCIATION HOSTS

FIRST ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT TO BENEFIT

THE MAYFAIR MEMORIAL PLAYGROUND

Festivities Kick-Off At 12:09PM at Rowland Ave at Vista St.

Saturday April 9, 2011

The Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) is excited to announce its First Annual Mayfair Easter Egg Hunt. MCA President Joe DeFelice is very proud of this event which he feels helps fill the void between our Christmas tree lighting in December and our Fallen Heroes Run and “May Fair” in May. DeFelice stated, “This event is a culmination of many neighbors who had not previously known each other coming together for a cause that is beneficial to our community at large. It is events like this that hold together the fabric of our neighborhood and make it tight knit as we know it is. It also gives an opportunity to visit the Mayfair Memorial Playground, which we have been raising money to rebuild, and to socialize with like minded parents and children from our community.” The event was the brainchild of MCA Playground Committee who thought the best way to showcase our efforts of rebuilding the playground would be to host an event at that location. Our Committee members Mia Hylan, Dana Lambie, Melinda Mulvenna and Anna Stacey have been working for weeks with the rest of the MCA membership to come up with a structure for the event.

The event will be free for the first 200 children thanks to a generous donation from American Insurance Agency. Each child will receive a prize for their participation and members of the MCA will be hosting a bake sale on the premises. Though it is a free event, donations are highly appreciated. The Committee wants the community to remember, “The main focus of this event is to raise awareness to our plight of rebuilding this playground, but we would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the need for funds is quite prevalent in our minds and we welcome any donations that come our way. Many have stepped forward in pledging their support hopefully, next year’s egg hunt will be held in our completed playground.”

This event is one of many exciting things happening in Mayfair this year! The Mayfair Civic Association and the Mayfair Business Association working on projects like this will only strengthen our motto - Mayfair is a Great place to Live, Work, and Play.
