Community egg hunt

The annual Easter egg hunt in Exeter Township was another success this year as families from throughout the county came to the Exeter Community Park to gather eggs, win prizes and see the Easter bunny. The event was originally scheduled for March 16, but was pushed back to March 23 due to the snowy weather. Because of the change of date, kids missed out on the opportunity for photos with the Easter bunny, but still had the chance to meet him as he hopped from egg hunt to egg hunt. The egg hunts were broken up into five different age groups, and even had an adult egg hunt for those 18 and older. Children of all ages were in the festive spring holiday spirit. Some eggs had prize vouchers, some had candy and some were just eggs. For the adult Easter egg hunt, coupons and gift cards were given from the Lords and Ladies Salon. “We expect a lot of kids,” said Kayla Grieff, of Exeter, who helped set up the 1,000 eggs involved. The Exeter Township Parks and Recreation Department sponsors the annual event along with a variety of sponsors and prize donations given from throughout the area.
