Woodstock and MSANA Sponsored Easter Egg Hunt

The MSANA has some exciting news....we've partnered with the Woodstock NA to host an Easter Egg Hunt in Mt. Scott Park.

The hunt, which has taken place for years now in Woodstock Park is moving over to our neighborhood this year. It will take place on Saturday, April 23rd.

To help make this happen, we are looking for volunteers to help stuff plastic eggs, prep the park on the morning of the hunt and stay around to help clean up.

Also, if you're a neighbor living in Mt. Scott-Arleta and you have a project, idea or group you'd like to get started (think knitting club, a walking group, or meet-up for Moms) please contact us and you can join us at our table on the 23rd and spread the word to the rest of your neighbors.

For more information and to get involved please contact an MSANA board member. Their info is in the side bar of the blog.
