Preparing for the hunt: Jaycees gear up for Easter tradition

In Williamstown, a community Easter Egg hunt will be 11 a.m. -1 p.m. Saturday in Tomlinson Park.

Olde Mistick Village Easter Egg Hunt - Saturday, March 31, 2018 12:00 noon - 27 Coogan Boulevard, Mystic, Conn.

The event was free for dive club members and others paid a five dollar registration fee. North Salem Girl Scouts not only provided goodies for the bake sale but helped turn the entire bake sale, the prize redemption center and assisted with the entire days' activities.

"We do your Toy Appeal and Easter Egg Appeal and it's quite common to get a bag-full, but nothing quite like this".

Jack Scherer, special events coordinator at the park district, said he told adults before each egg hunt that each child would be able to gather about 20 of the plastic eggs. The hunt was divided into four different age brackets; children 0-3, 4-6,7-10, and an adaptive category for children with exceptional needs.

Friendship Botanic Gardens is located at 2055 East U.S. 12, Michigan City, IN 46360. These eggs contain special prizes from businesses such as gift cards and more.

"We have to split them because that's what fits best", she said.

Easter is a day second only to Christmas for time spent with family.

The Easter Bunny will also be present, as will the Lion's mascot.

Personally, I never buy eggs until a week or two before Easter and then I try to buy as few as possible, which leads me to ponder: just how many Easter eggs should a child get? "Regardless of the weather, everyone still comes and has a good time".

Clayton and Mallorie Miles of Quincy brought their Lab-hound mix Leo to the Easter egg hunt last year, and they all had so much fun that they wanted to participate in it again this year.

New this year, kids got to keep the eggs they found, which were filled with various treats.

"The La Porte Jaycees Port-A-Pit Chicken Sale is a great way to both support Jaycees events in our community and save having to cook the day before Easter", said Jim Jozaitis, Port-A-Pit co-chair.
