“Breakfast with the Bunny just seems to get bigger and better every year,” said Iroquois and District Business Group member, Evonne Delegarde. “This is our third annual event in Iroquois, and we are hoping to get over 200 attendees.”
The 2013 Breakfast with the Bunny was held on Sunday, March 24, at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch # 370, in Iroquois, and ran from 8 a.m. until noon.
A delicious breakfast of bacon, eggs, sausage and beans was served up by the Legion’s Ladies Auxiliary to hungry visitors. Face painting, Easter crafts, a jujube guessing contest, a colouring contest and small chocolate gifts were available for all the children.
JoLee Menagerie of Dundela was a big hit.
Joanne Carruthers, co-owner, brought nine bunnies and ten guinea pigs for children to admire and pet. Some of the bunnies even went home with new families.
Presiding over everything, from her balloon throne, was the Easter Bunny herself. Dozens of children came up to sit on her knee and share stories and treats.
“This Breakfast is not a fund raiser,” explained Evonne Delegarde. “It’s really a com-munity event: a lot of people volunteered their time to help us today. The Breakfast was co-sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion and the Iroquois and District Business Group and several members of both organizations, as well as student volunteers, were on hand all morning. I hope that a community and family event like this just keeps on growing.”
