Communities plan Easter Egg Hunts

By Staff | Apr 1, 2015

Several local organizations and communities have planned Easter Egg hunts for children and families this week in celebration of the upcoming Easter holiday.

The Friendly Lions Club will host their egg hunt at the Friendly Community Center on April 3 at 2 p.m. inviting children and families to participate.

The Stealey Green Community Funds provided the funds for the Middlebourne Easter Egg hunt which will be held on April 4 at 11 a.m. at Burgbacher Field (the football field behind the old Tyler High School). Volunteers will provide the majority of the manpower for the event.

The Sistersville Community Service Organization will sponsor their annual hunt on April 4 at 11:30 a.m. at the Sistersville City Park. In case of rain, the Sistersville hunt will take place on the same day and time at the James Wilison Family Center (old Sistersville High School gym).

The SCSO has divided the children into four divisions to search for the candy filled Easter Eggs: pre-school; Kindergarten; first and second grade; and third, fourth and fifth grades. Two large Easter baskets will be given away to one boy and one girl at this event.

The Easter Bunny is scheduled to be at several local egg hunts this year. Parents are reminded to bring their cameras and catch a memory.

Events also taking place at the Sistersville hunt will be cake walks, children’s games and activities and the Easter Bunny will be on hand should parents want to take pictures of their children.

In Paden City, the annual Easter Egg hunt will be held at the park by the River on April 4 at 11 a.m.
