Parish, NY–On Saturday, April 23rd the Friends of the Parish Public Library sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt and Dan Dalin’s reading of “Green Eggs & Ham”. Dan, a father of 4 and the President of the Greater Parish Area Chamber of Commerce, has for years, been pleasing children of all ages with his special readings of Dr. Seuss books. Saturday was no exception. The children and parents were delighted with his storytelling talent reading “Green Egg & Ham”.
The festivities were not dampened by the rainy weather, more than 60 children and as many parents turned out to find those eggs.
Haiden Masters and Chloe Moyhihan were the happy winners in a drawing for an (stuffed Animal) Easter Rabbit and an Easter Basket filled with goodies and “Green Eggs & Ham”.
The Friends wish to extend special thanks to Will and Kate Alsworth for their stuffing of 125 eggs for hiding. Kate hid those eggs and assisted the children in decorating an Easter egg to take home, also serving cookies and juice to the children.
