Easter Bunny in Willow River | Opinion

Easter is on its way. This old bunny is getting ready to jump on this bunny track. He will stop at the Willow River Fire Station for some fun. Please join the Willow River Community Club with the help of the Willow River Fire Department to organize Fun with the Easter Bunny. This bunny will be jumping on Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to noon. There should be traditional fun with children. The Willow River Community Club raffle grand prize is a 20-foot pool and some other really cool prizes, so look for raffle tickets at businesses around town. Come join us for some extra hoppy fun.

For children aged 3 years before September 1, 2021 and older who have not completed an educational developmental screening, preschool screening will be available on March 23 and 24 by appointment with Ms. Chas at school.
