Welcome to the Point. The Point being College Point.

I hope that all those colored eggs have been enjoyed by family and friends and that the bunny is taking a nap after all his work. It certainly was sad that the Washington, D.C. egg hunt was called off due to inclement weather, but there’s always next year.

Community Dinner will be held at First Reformed Church at noon, Saturday, April 28. The Rummage Sale will be on May 3 and 4.

On April 29, all the children with their parents or guardians are invited to the First Reformed Church for Mommy and Me and Playgroup Recognition Day. The children will sing and then go to the chapel for Free Play and snack. They are looking for volunteers to watch the children during the rest of the service, so some of the parents and guardians can enjoy the remainder of the hour and hear the sermon. See Cathy Catterson or call the church office 359-3956, if you would like to volunteer

Mommy and Me Playgroup will hold a Plant Sale and Bake Sale on Sunday, May 6. The money raised will be used for new equipment and toys. They would like to offer a scholarship to children and parents who would like to attend Playgroup or Mommy and Me but have financial difficulty. If you’d like to sponsor a child, the cost per month is $25 for Mommy and Me and $45 per month for Playgroup. The money helps pay for supplies, crafts, trips and Graduation. If you are interested, please contact Kathy Catterson at 849-1824 or Pastor Rosenblum. Your support is appreciated.

A speedy recovery to Mabel McAuliffe.
