The Pahrump Holiday Task Force has just one mission, that of bringing the community together for holiday celebrations throughout the year, and with Easter less than a month away, the nonprofit group is gearing up for its next big shindig.
Holding a committee meeting on Monday, March 6, members of the holiday task force spent time discussing the upcoming Community Easter Picnic. This event will offer everyone in Pahrump and the surrounding areas the opportunity to spend the holiday enjoying fun family activities as well as a freshly grilled lunch, all free of charge.
As detailed by the Community Easter Picnic flyer, the event will include, “Hamburgers and hot dogs, kettle corn and cotton candy, fun activities for kids and adults, rides on the children’s train, pictures with the Easter Bunny, exhibitors for families and kids and much, much more!”
The holiday task force’s Easter event is one that regularly draws large crowds and having an abundance of individuals, organizations and businesses chipping in to make its happen is crucial. The task force is a nonprofit organization operated on an all-volunteer basis, so every single donation, be it monetary or otherwise, goes directly toward supporting the task force’s quarterly holiday gatherings.
The holiday task force needs more than just donations to make its events a success, however, with in-person participation another important aspect.
The Community Easter Picnic relies on vendors to distribute the colorful, candy-filled eggs that the valley’s children will be so eager to receive, some of which may even come with a special surprise for the recipient. The Easter picnic also presents area businesses and organization with the chance for exposure while handing out those delightful eggs, so participation is a win for all involved.
This year, the Community Easter Picnic is being sponsored by the task force, along with the Pahrump Disability Outreach Program, or PDOP, and Joe’s Sanitation. Several vendors are already set to take part but the task force is always looking to increase participation.
“We would love to have your organization come and share your information at this great event,” information from the task force reads. “We are asking each organization to provide an activity or game at each table for the children’s enjoyment. We’ve had 30-plus organizations come out in the past and we are looking to have even more this year! So please consider joining us for a fun day in the park with our community.”
The deadline to sign up as a vendor for the Easter picnic is April 1. Forms can be requested by emailing PahrumpHolidayTaskForce@gmail.com
In addition to the Easter-time fun, the Community Easter Picnic is incorporating a charitable effort. The task force is asking attendees to bring along some canned goods for a food drive, with all items collected to go to the Nevada Outreach Training Organization, which offers variety of services for those struggling in the community.
The Community Easter Picnic is set for Saturday, April 8 at Petrack Park. Activities will begin at 10 a.m. and run until 2 p.m.
