The Annual Easter Egg Hunt in St Nicholas Park is scheduled for Saturday, April 4th, Noon – 4pm.  This is one of the most attended events sponsored by the Friends of St Nicholas Park. Last year there were at least 200 – 300 kids (much more than expected) and although we ran out of face paint and other supplied, a great time was had by all.  This year, we want to be well prepared.  We are in need of at least 25 volunteers to help with face painting, balloon art, games, arts and crafts table, activity corner for the little ones and, for the first time this year, if someone volunteers, Ms Bunny! Please let us know by this Friday, April 1st if you would like to volunteer by sending an e-mail to info@westharlemcpo.org. Additionally, If some one would like to perform — magic tricks or do a  sing-a-long kiddie’s session, please let us know as soon as possible.  We would like to make this a memorable and FUN day for the all — “little and big kids” — please contribute your talents!

Unfortunately, we do not have someone available to coordinate a tree lighting this year. In year’s past we have had successful tree lighting events which included Santa Claus, Carol Singing from Harlem School of the Arts, and a rendition of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas with Tamara Tunie. WE also usually had hot cider and treats for everyone.

Hopefully, the park can have an event next year, but rest assured, our tree on the plaza will be lit with lights as well as the evergreens at the entrance of the plaza.

If you are interested in helping us with events in the park for 2013, please contact us at info@stnicholaspark.org

Thank you!
