CECPTA Newsletter April 2014
Well has the weather warmed up or WHAT? This past weekend it was gorgeous and seemed like all of Carrollton was out working in their yards! With Spring comes Easter…which falls on April 20th this year. To celebrate, we will be having our CECPTA Easter Egg Hunt this Friday the 4th. More details below!The annual Panty Raid was a huge hit.  We collected 763 pairs of socks and underwear for the Clothes Closet.  I’m so proud to be surrounded by such giving and generous friends. Congratulations to the RED playgroup who won the contest with an impressive 270 points.

Can’t wait to see everyone at this month’s meeting, which will be next Friday, April 11th at 9.30am!

CECPTA Easter Egg Hunt

Our Easter Egg hunt is scheduled for 10:00 am on Friday, April 4th at Coppell’s Kid Country located at 260 East Parkway Blvd.  In Andrew Brown Park East.

Please bring 12 stuffed plastic eggs for every child participating in the hunt.  I am asking that all eggs be taped shut if they open easily upon dropping onto a grass lawn.  This will help me tremendously during the process of dispersing the eggs in the fields.
Felt baskets will also be provided to the first 44 non adult participants to RSVP. Please email child’s name to

CECPTA will be providing chicken nuggets, gold fish, crackers and lemonade for this party.  Please sign up to bring a snack to share via sign up genius. Here is the link
