First Lady Hosts Childrens Easter

As the community readies for the upcoming Easter holiday season, First Lady Cecile deJongh has announced plans to host the annual Children’s Easter celebrations on all three islands. The St. John event is scheduled for Saturday, March 22, at the Frank Powell Park from 10 to 11 a.m

The Easter event is open to all children age 10 and under and features an original skit written by Glenn “Kwabena” Davis and Edgar Lake, an original song written by Ulric Ferrari, book readings by the First Lady along with Cheryl Francis, and of course, the Easter Bunny, who will be on hand to deliver Easter baskets to all the children. Disc jockeys will also be on hand to provide music for the children’s listening pleasure.

“I am excited about hosting this year’s events,” said deJongh. “Not only will our children get to enjoy traditional Easter festivities with the customary Easter basket and Easter eggs, but they will also have the opportunity to celebrate our culture in a theatrical setting. Instead of having an Easter egg hunt, the children will be treated to culturally relevant Easter entertainment.”
