CITY TO HOLD 70th ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT
The City Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department has scheduled the 70th Annual Easter Egg Hunt to take place at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 15th at Allen Park. This free event will be held in the upper level of the park where the playgrounds are located. That area will then be divided into three separate age groups: children 9 to 12 years of age, children 5 to 8 years of age and children 4 and under. An announcement will be made by Thursday, April 13th if park conditions require the event be moved inside the Allen Park Ice Rink.
Over 3,000 eggs filled with candy will be “hidden” in the Hunt area. In addition, 36 toy prize eggs and two Gold and two Silver eggs will be hidden. The Silver and Gold egg prizes are sponsored through a donation in memoriam of Mark Hess. The Child Advocacy Program is donating 6 stuffed animals to be given away as prizes as well. The Easter Bunny will arrive by fire truck to kick off the event.
Also assisting in the sponsorship of the Hunt is the Sertoma Club of Jamestown, Allen Park Women’s Club, Morton Club, Kendall Club, Jamestown Bowling Company, McDonald’s, Media One Group, and Linda Crossley at Esquire Cleaners. Girl Scout Troop 20029 Juniors helped stuff all 3,000 eggs with candy.
All children 12 years of age and under are invited to attend. For more information, contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 483-7523.
