The Garden City Recreation Department is once again running its annual Easter Egg Hunt. Our department is pleased to announce that our hunt has been generously sponsored by Flushing Savings Bank. Our Recreation Department would like to thank Flushing Savings Bank for the community spirit they have shown.

On Saturday, April 11, at Community Park, three hunts will be held beginning at 10 a.m. with three age divisions: preschool to kindergarten, Grades 1-2 and Grades 3-5.

Special eggs will be hidden for all divisions. Each hunt will also feature a grand prize (an Easter basket filled with goodies), which will go to the youngster who finds the egg marked "#1 Lucky Egg."

Please note that the hunt begins at 10 a.m. sharp! Please make sure you allow for ample time to park and walk to the site. For further information about our Easter Egg Hunt, call the Recreation Dept. at 465-4075 or Community Park the morning of the hunt at 483-2525.

The following dance classes for adults will be offered by the Recreation Department:

Adult Ballet beginning April 7, Tuesday at 9:15 a.m.

Adult Stretch beginning April 2, Thursdays at 9:15 a.m.

Adult Jazz beginning March 28, Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.

Each class is one hour long and will be held in Cluett Hall. The classes will run for eight weeks. The cost of each eight-week class will be $64. To register for any of these classes, visit the Recreation Office at 108 Rockaway Avenue with a check made payable to the "Inc. Village of Garden City."

There are limited openings available in our Junior and Senior Hockey leagues for children ages 9-14. Our leagues play on Fridays beginning March 20. Please visit the Recreation Office at 108 Rockaway Avenue for further details or to register. Our mites division is now filled.
