RED CLOUD GARRISON - To celebrate Easter and the Month of the Military Child, Family, Morale, Welfare, and Recreation along with Better Opportunities for Unaccompanied and Single Soldiers, USAG-RC Commissary, and Army and Air Force Exchange Service sponsored Easter egg hunts at USAG-RC, USAG-Casey and Camp Stanley April 10, 11, and 12.

"BOSS teamed up with the Pear Blossom Cottage at USAG-Red Cloud and donated the hot dogs and pigs-in-a-blanket," said Sgt. James Soto, president of Area I BOSS. "We also donated the eggs and the candies that go inside them."

Forty or so children hit the ground running April 10 on the USAG-RC Village Green to find plastic eggs with candy and special prizes hidden inside.

"We are doing all we can to create a better atmosphere for command sponsored Families in Area I," Soto said. "We want them to feel at home."

The USAG-RC commissary and Army and Air Force Exchange Service provided special prizes and food for the celebrations too.

"The children are really having a good time with the food, eggs and face painting," said Rebeca McBryar, Camp Castle Family Readiness Group, who brought her child, Alex. "Everybody got plenty of eggs."

"We have a lot of services involved this year for the Easter Egg Hunt," said. Natasha Lyons, USAG-Red Cloud PBC manager. "We have the USAG-RC Library donating books, the Commissary donating food and AAFES donating the prizes, with BOSS helping with the food and the eggs."

"So far, I am the only face-painting artist," she said. "This is our community and we want to make a cozy very homey event. We even have baked bread representing Easter, and we are proud to present this event."
