Egg hunt: New day, same fun

Shawnee Community College Phi Theta Kappa, Shawnee Community College student organizations and Karnak United Methodist Church will sponsor this year's Easter egg hunt.

Her daughter Emma, however, didn't seem to have any problems finding her own Easter eggs.

Play games to win Easter eggs (both candy and toy-filled available to accommodate dietary restrictions) and enjoy refreshments, activities and Easter surprises at Silver Sands School, 349 Holmes Boulevard NW in Fort Walton Beach. The boys variety baseball tournament starts today, April 10, and runs until Thursday, April 13. "We spend more time setting it up".

Ethel McKenzie reaches out for an egg during the Senior Easter Egg Hunt at the Whitefish Community Center on Saturday.

The Bern Home Improvement Club and Legion Auxiliary Easter Egg Hunt will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 15, in front of the Bern Community Building. Parents can go with the children who are 2 and younger.

EASTER EGG HUNT: 9 a.m. -noon Saturday at Doko Meadows Park. Though it's a different day than in years past, said Lindsay Hodnefield, Jackson WOT member and egg hunt co-chair, all the fun folks remember from prior years returns in a big way.

This special long weekend will see tons of "egg-citing" activities being hosted in Durban and surrounding areas so why not be part of the festivities?

"It's kind of a group effort", Lana said. "This year we had more kids than last year".

"We probably had about 2,000 eggs hidden out there, and there isn't a single one left." said Cassandra Bennett, a recreation assistant supervisor with DPR.

"It was really good", said Morgan.

By the way, Morris insists the Easter Bunny is the real celebrity.

The students are going to be filling the eggs in a 20-minute period called PAWS that allows teachers to have interventions with students. The popular holiday tradition will include a search for a special gift-filled egg in the store's nursery department. One service, a contemporary one, will be for adults.

Builders Club is a club that teaches children about volunteer work and leadership. "Kids will have a craft choice of: Easter Egg Magnet, Easter Egg Decoration or an Easter Bunny Magnet" say Will Rogers, Youth Services Librarian.

"This was awesome, everything was under control", she said, noting that none of the children were too aggressive and that everyone "had a great time".
