A midtown church will fill Toumey Park next Saturday with more than 17,000 Easter eggs to celebrate a decade of inviting the public to share in its Easter festivities.

With the support of Pima County Supervisors Chairman Ramón Valadez, the S.O.B.E.R. Project, a faith-based program and church geared toward those in recovery, invites the community on Saturday, March 30, to the annual hunt for candy-filled eggs.

Easter’s message of rebirth and renewal is particularly

important to the congregation, said Pastor Larry Munguia, whose church offers a faith-based recovery program in addition to services at 758 S.

Columbus Blvd. “We’re a church that is very community-minded,” he said. “We want to be invested in what’s going on in our neighborhood.”

Those families with no experience with addiction are also welcome to attend the event or services.

Supervisor Valadez, who represents the area, will be in attendance. “Seeing so many children having such a good time is not only a great deal of fun, but it’s another example of taking the time to connect with one another and build community,” Supervisor Valadez said.

Volunteers willing to come clean up the park beforehand to make sure it’s safe for kids and free of litter are asked to come to Toumey Park, 4500 E. Eastland St., at 9:30 a.m. The Easter egg hunt will run from 10 a.m. until noon.

The park is accessible from Swan Road and Eastland Street.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
