Community Egg Hunt happens March 30

The annual Community Easter Egg Hunt held each year March 30 at Jackson Park is going to bigger and better than ever, according to organizer Jeff Mueller, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church.

“We will be hiding over 7,000 plastic eggs this year,” Mueller said.

Every child ages 1-10 will receive an Easter goodie bag filled with candy, prizes, stickers and activity booklets. The Easter Bunny will be ready for hugs and photos with the kids.

There will also be special entertainment, music and extra surprises such as a possible visit from the “Easter Panda” starting at 10 a.m. up to the egg hunt, which will start at exactly 11 a.m.

Rain or shine, the Easter Egg Hunt will happen.

The community is also invited to help the sponsoring churches stuff more than 800 Easter goodie bags with candy, prizes, stickers and booklets on March 27 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Ninth and State streets, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

An annual children’s safety fair will go from 10 a.m. to noon at Jackson Park.

Community safety organizations have been invited to attend the egg hunt and safety fair.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
