Support Rome Art Center’s events

I would like to thank everyone who made the Bunny Trail event at the Rome Art and Community Center possible for the children of Rome. I attended the event with my 2-year-old son, and we had a great time! It is a small, intimate event that is appropriate for children of differing age levels. It is well organized so that there is no overcrowding or rushing. Each child got an opportunity to meet the storybook characters as well as the Easter Bunny, and to have photos taken at their leisure.

My family is fortunate in all that we have been blessed with, but I recognize that there are many in our community who may not be able to afford a costly mall photograph with the Easter Bunny. I think it is wonderful that the Rome Art and Community Center provides this opportunity to all of Rome’s children, free of charge, so that they may all experience some Easter magic. I would encourage anyone who has the resources to support the Rome Art and Community Center and its valuable programming, especially for our children.
