Hop on board

The Easter Bunny Express recently traveled to St. Thomas a'Becket Church and two other neighborhoods as Canton Leisure Services and the Canton Public Safety Department helped residents celebrate Easter and spring cheer. About 150 residents were able to have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny and enjoy Easter candy.  In addition, participants were able to choose from donated items collected by St. Thomas a'Becket Church, including: reusable bags, raincoats, rain boots, hats, gloves, sports equipment, arts and crafts kits, toys, as well as personal care items such as shampoo, toothpaste, bath gels and more. “These types of special events help strengthen our community while providing a fun and supportive experience for the participating families,” said Laura Mortier, Canton recreation specialist. “Canton Leisure Services and Canton Public Safety's partnership with St. Thomas a'Becket is an indispensable part of the equation which helps us meet a critical community need that would be difficult to fulfill without their support.”
This special Easter Bunny Express was designed to engage community members in a personalized festive celebration, as well as provide an opportunity to enhance camaraderie and provide an opportunity for community members to come together in a safe and positive environment, officials said.
