Breakfast with the Easter Bunny was hopping this Sunday in Hegewisch. The General Pulaski Knights of Columbus 3223 served up its annual tradition with plenty of eggs, French toast and pancakes to satisfy hungry attendees.

The Easter Bunny stood near the front of the room, greeting young visitors and mingling with older ones. The breakfast seemed extra busy as we even had trouble finding seats this year.

Catholic men 18 or older who attend St. Columba, St. Florian or Mother of God Church and are interested in joining the General Pulaski Council can email Knights@Hegewisch.Net.

St. Florian will have a spring brunch from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 27 in the school gymnasium, 131st and Houston Avenue. They will serve all-you-can-eat breakfast and lunch items for $12 for adults and $5 for kids ages 4 to 10. Prices increase to $15 and $6 if purchased at the door. There will be raffles and bake sales.

To buy tickets, call (773) 646-4877 or (773) 646-2868.

Calumet Memorial Park District will be hosting egg hunts at four locations this weekend.

Come out at noon April 12 to Memorial Park, Wentworth Avenue and Memorial Drive; Veterans Parks, Burnham Avenue and 165th Street; Sandridge Center, Oglesby Avenue and Memorial Drive; or Burnham Park, Greenbay Avenue and 138th Place, and let the kids search for eggs.

Don’t forget to bring bags for their candy. Call (708) 862-6443 for more information.
