Tri-Township Egg Hunt sees another successful year
Tri-Township Park on Saturday was hopping with children all trying to collect eggs.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt, now in its 13th year, is sponsored by Heather Stirling of Remax Alliance and Tri-Township Park.
“We have done the Easter egg hunt in rain, sleet and sunshine, but this is the first year we are doing it inside,” Stirling said. “The wind was too much.”
Stirling said organizers stuffed a total of 13,0107 eggs with trinkets and candy and spread them out in four rounds. Each age group also had golden eggs to be traded for bigger prices.
To enter into the raffle, a donation of canned goods for Ministries Unlimited was requested. The prices for the raffle were donated by local businesses.
For the eighth year, Triad Hockey also helped out with the event. Each year the players help distribute the eggs, help with directing guests and help the kids fill their baskets.
“It is good for our players to get out and serve their community,” JV Coach Dave Radford said. “To be able to use teamwork outside of the rink to make things fun for other kids. One day, these same little kids may end up wearing the Knights hockey jersey and pass on the tradition to others. Hopefully we as a club will continue to be embraced by the community we live in even more as well as the high school our players attend.”
