The lawn teems with children rushing around the lawn scooping up plastic eggs and looking for the “golden egg” prizes.

Babies toddle along, pick up an egg and plop down to inspect their plunder.

What changes year-to-year is the registration information.

This year, to join the hunt families are asked to pay $3/child or $5/family. Payment will be “at the door”, so no pre-registration is necessary.

(You are also encouraged to show up with an item for the Food Pantry.)

The fun is set again for the day before Easter – this Saturday, March 26.

Festivities will begin at 10:30 am with the chance to take pictures with the Easter Bunny. (Bring your own camera.)

The “hunt” (really more of a plunder) begins at 11:00 am. (Bring your own basket to collect kids’ bounty.)

The event is annually held on the Community House lawn. But again this year, there is a back up plan for rain.

If necessary, Fay School will offer up Harlow Gym. (I’ll keep you posted on that closer to the date!)

My two kids are both under 5, and this year we were several rows back when the egg hunt began. The area right in front of where people were waiting was cleaned out instantly. We kept walking into the field to where there were still eggs but we couldn’t get anywhere fast enough and all the eggs kept getting taken before we could get to them. We ended up with a total of 3 eggs, and I saw many kids with large, overflowing baskets full of eggs.

It would be more fun for the younger kids if the way this was done was changed a bit so they were able to participate more. They could give he younger kids a head start, put the kids in different age groups, or set a limit to number of eggs per kid.
