— I hope everyone had a happy Easter. We did in spite of the snow, rain, cold and even had some sunshine. The kids, and even some big kids played baseball, football and had an egg hunt.

The weather was good on Saturday for the Easter egg hunt in Greencreek. The winners were as follows: Age 0-3, Brooklynn Spencer; 4-5, Will Sonnen; 6-7, Lillian Rehder; 8-12, Luke Stubbers.

Mother/Daughter Breakfast is Sunday, April 10, 9:30 a.m. at Assumption Parish Hall. All are welcome — they put on a great meal!
