Annual Easter Egg Hunt Another Success
Saturday, April 4, 2015 09:30
It took almost an hour for the Easter Bunny and his helpers to spread 4000 eggs throughout the field behind the fire house this morning. As time drew closer to 930, young hunters began piling into the parking lot, ready to find some candy and to hopefully find one of the "Golden Eggs". A little after 930, Firefighter Kevin Hovis made the well anticipated announcement and the hungry herd took off too the fields gathering as many eggs as they could. A field once riddled with 4,000 Easter eggs was cleared in approximately 5 minutes. We would like to thank everyone who came to spend this morning with us and Mr. Easter Bunny. We hope you all had as much fun as we did.
