Volunteers, Relay For Life teams, and staff with the Carbon-Tamaqua Unit of the American Cancer Society held their first annual breakfast with the Easter Bunny fundraising event at the Masonic Lodge in Tamaqua. In addition to the Easter Bunny with his basket of eggs, patrons had the opportunity to enjoy a homemade breakfast with friends and loved ones. Local vendors were also set up displaying their wares. Event coordinator and survivor chairperson Heather Eltringham pointed out her appreciation to all the sponsors, volunteers and patrons who made this event successful.
