Ms. Shinozaki adds:
Totally amazed at peoples generosity.

We had over 30 people helping us stuff our 10,000 eggs. We had a 91 year old Grandmother who stuffed over 300 eggs by herself! We had a very pregnant mother helping us with our inventory count. We had a Superr stuffer who had a crisis at her work till 3am and still woke up and got the eggs to us when she promised.

We received about 70 non-english books and hundreds of toys donated!

We are so happy to have a performance by the Main Street Theater & Dance Alliance.

We have the best committee and team ever. Every one involved has been working incredibly hard. Julie, Shauna, Julia, Susy, Eva, Marie, John, Janet, Sherie, the Girl Scouts, to name a few! Let’s hope this year we get good weather!
