The event could not end without a bit of staff competition.  The men and ladies, who had worked so hard dying eggs, preparing the games, coordinating the prizes and candy, hiding the…OH WAIT!  That was the Easter Bunny!

Congratulations to all our participants, especially our winners…Jahmeer, Lillie, Alma and Maya, Evan,  DJ,  Jordan, and Ethan for both winning a few of the games and for donating his prizes to the second place winners.  Now THAT is sportsmanship.   Everyone gave it their all and it was a perfect Easter morning in Belize.

Especially when followed by a dip in the pool.
