On April 19 members of the community gathered at St. Paulís UCC, Amityville for an egg hunt. The church has been doing egg hunts for at least 45 years, and the only switch was from real hard boiled eggs to plastic candy filled eggs. There are many prize eggs for each age group. Preparations for the egg hunt started around Christmas time. Since this was the first year that the evangelism committee would be heading the egg hunt, and they wanted to be well prepared. The egg hunt lasted 1hour , starting and ending with church bells. The children who hunted the eggs started from youngest to oldest. This was the first year that they gave out participation prizes. All participants received tokens for a free kids meal at Texas Road house. The children I talked to favored St Paulís UCC egg hunt because they gave effort to try and hide the eggs and it lasted longer.

Donations from Amity Fire Co., Texas Roadhouse, RM Palmer candy, and Paul C Neuman made the Easter egg hunt possible.
