More than 125 senior citizens attended the Ascension Council on Aging’s annual Easter Spring Fling on March 24 at the Gonzales Senior Center.

Despite the cancellation of the Easter egg hunt because of wet conditions, the party continued with Gary Bello and Friends providing the music.

The popular hat contest had more than 26 entries, with contestants sashaying around the center as the judges picked winners in several categories.

In the Prettiest Hat category, winners were Gail Barter, Barbara Ghirardi and Annie Hall. Lucille Taylor, Mary Sheets, Shirley Stelley won in the Most Original category, and Elouise Freeman, Debra Danielson and Mary Franklin won in the Funniest Hat category. Best Theme winners were Marion Crawford, Evelyn Logwood and Rosa Braud.
