YMCA fitness challenge part of memorial tribute

Spring is tiptoeing around this time, with some 80-degree days still clashing with a few nights in the 30s – and as always the weeds are more eager to chance the conditions than most well-tended grasses – but vibrant colors associated with warmer conditions, and especially the Easter season, are a spirit-rejuvenating sight. Flowers and plants springing to life and longer spans of sunshine between April’s showers are combining to brighten the landscape, including the display provided by the Brawley Garden Center on the Main Street courtyard in downtown Mooresville. /Lee Sullivan

CORNELIUS –  The annual Easton Mills Memorial Challenge is set for Saturday, April 30, at the Lake Norman YMCA in Cornelius.

This year’s challenge will be a four-station partner workout where participants can test their strength, agility, speed and power.

The event honors the life and memory of Easton Mills, a 2-year-old girl who died from complications of a rare tumor in 2017.

The 8:30 a.m. to noon event at the YMCA, 21300 Davidson St., will generate money to help the YMCA send area children to camp.

Christian Mission seeks seasonal support

MOORESVILLE – Volunteer efforts play a big role in Mooresville Christian Mission activities, especially in the operation of the Mission’s Client Choice Food Pantry and Resource Store.

Recently, a group of fifth-graders from Coddle Creek Elementary School pitched in to collect more than 330 items for the food pantry, delivering a truckload of goods when the supply was running low. Supporters also brought Easter baskets to help with the agency’s EGG-Ceptional Easter Drive Thru event.
