Pancakes and an Easter Egg Hunt…Sign Me Up!

Mayorby Mayor Peggy Krueger

We are about to enjoy Argyle’s 3rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by the Town of Argyle,  our schools and our local churches. I have been asked how in the world that these three groups, representing government, religion and education could possibly come together to organize a successful event. The answer is simple: we have a community that cares and supports each other.

One day, three years ago, when I had only been mayor a short time, I received a call from a local church to see if I would join them for a meeting. The idea was presented, that in an effort to help bring our community together, we have all our local churches join together with the town to sponsor a community event. We decided on an Easter egg hunt, asked the school to participate, and the rest is history! We had a great time planning for the event and the result was better than we could have hoped for. Year two built on the success of the prior year and we are expecting this year’s event to be our biggest community draw yet.

This year’s event will be on Saturday, March 26th, beginning with the Lions Club pancake breakfast fundraiser to be held in the Argyle High School cafeteria. The fun continues with the Easter egg hunt at the high school starting at 11:00 and ending at 2:00. We will have bounce houses, an obstacle course, live music, food trucks and, of course, thousands of eggs. The music will be provided by The Poor Kings and the food trucks include Holy Frijoles, Nates 125th, Crazy Dawgs, Amparo Nieto, and Snappy Snow cones. Please bring can goods to donate to the Argyle Food Bank.

Please join us for pancakes at the Lions Club fundraiser and then enjoy a day with your family and friends at Argyle High School for the 3rd Annual Argyle Easter Egg Hunt.
