The Exline Recreation Committee’s annual spring smorgasbord at the Exline Community Center is Sunday, April 10. The meal will be served from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. and features chicken, pork roast and meatloaf plus an assortment of side dishes and tempting homemade pies and desserts. The price is $7 for adults and $3 for children.
The Exline Royal Neighbors will be selling plastic Easter eggs at the door for $1 each or six for $5. We will start selling the eggs at 11 a.m. Every egg contains a number to be matched to prizes displayed in the adjoining City Hall. The prizes are worth $1 to $50. We have been given many nice prizes for this event from the surrounding business communities. Our members have been busy with sewing projects to be given as prizes as well as giving other donations.
