Just under 300 local kids ages 10 and under hopped on down to Ecumen North Branch March 24 to celebrate spring with Ecumen North Branch senior residents at the sixth annual Spring Spectacular.  Activities included a petting zoo, photos with the Easter Bunny and a coloring contest.  Senior resident volunteers stuffed more than 1,400 plastic eggs filled with candy and handed them to children along a bunny trail.

Ecumen North Branch would like to give a special thank you to the Lions Club of North Branch for sponsoring the Spring Spectacular. The Lions Club helped set up, volunteered along the bunny trail, donated door prizes and sponsored the petting zoo.

Ecumen would also like to thank the local businesses that contributed to the event.
