Weekend Easter egg hunts



Millersburg Elementary School — The Millersburg Lions Club Easter egg hunt will take place rain or shine at Millersburg Elementary School at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Doors will open at 9 a.m.

Children ages 1 to 12 can participate. There will be six age groups.

Children can also register to win one of eight grand prizes at the door, including five bicycles, one wagon and two tricycles.

Five prizes will be awarded for each age group.

According to Lions officials, there will be 4,500 eggs stuffed with candy, plus there will be 150 dollar coins.

Donations and volunteers are from Interra Credit Union and Millersburg American Legion Auxiliary.

All local children can participate. For more information, call 642-4090.


Callander Sports Complex — The Nappanee Rotary Club will sponsor the annual Easter egg Hunt for children Saturday. The hunt will take place at the Callander Sports Complex, located along C.R. 7 at the McCormick Creek Golf Course entrance.

Participants will be divided into four classes. In each age group there will be one gold egg and two silver eggs that will receive cash prizes (sponsored by Nappanee’s Lake City Bank) and a chocolate bunny. New this year, will be a drawing for a new bicycle from Martin Hardware. All participants will be given a raffle ticket, with the drawing following the awards ceremony. Easter egg candy is provided by Nappanee Farm Service.

 Parents are reminded that, while they are asked to supervise their children before and after the hunt, they are not to join them in the actual egg hunt — it is strictly for the children. A smaller area is set up for the toddlers (age 1 to 2) to hunt eggs on their own.

The hunt will go on, rain or shine, so participating children should dress appropriately. The hunt will begin at 10 a.m. sharp, so look for posted signs directing families to the proper diamond for their child’s age group.

Remember to look for the child’s designated area beforehand, because once the hunt begins, the eggs disappear quickly.
