The annual Easter picnic at the Troy School went over with a full crowd. Food lined the room from one end of the room to the other. There were a lot of old faces and newcomers. People were also out on the lawn as we didn't have room inside. The weather with all the sunshine could not have been better.
Josh Lewis hid the Easter eggs for the little kids. There were around 35-40 there. I never saw so many children there. We had 64 adults and a good time was had by all. There were people from Spokane, Asotin, Anatone, Clarkston, Lewiston, Flora, Joseph, Enterprise and towns I probably forgot.
Shilo Oasis had a full house on Easter. They had a buffet dinner. Farrel said around 90 people came. All in all, Troy had a great day.
