BARNES AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Massachusetts -- If you were around base on March 27 & 29 you would have seen a lot of activity around the dining facility. In addition to the hustle and bustle of some very dedicated volunteers, you would have seen nearly 200 families taking part in two of the Family Readiness Group's staple activities, the biannual spaghetti dinner and the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
The Family Readiness Group, chaired by Ms. Pat Connors, works to bring families together through numerous events.
The Spaghetti supper is held annually in the spring and fall. Through support from Big E's Supermarket in Easthampton, the non-profit organization is able to bring families together to enjoy some fellowship and networking.
On Sunday, the Easter egg hunt was a complete success with a visit from Peter Cotton Tail in his 'egg mobile' with ears and a fluffy pink nose.
