Easter Egg Hunt to continue

 

Another (almost) casualty of the closing of the Mobilize Montgomery office will again take place. The free Easter Egg Hunt, this year sponsored by CornerStone State Bank, will take place next Wednesday. 
According to President Connie White Tupy, she heard nobody was organizing or sponsoring it one day while she was pumping gas.
“I started talking to Maridan Nesmoe about the bunny pictures at the bank and she said there wasn’t going to be an Easter Egg Hunt this year,” Tupy said. “She suggested I call her daughter, Dawn Anderson, who could give me more information.”
After Tupy decided to take on the event, next up was choosing the place. Because Easter is early this year and a significant amount of snow remains outside, Tupy asked Shorty Deutsch to use the Legion so kids can search for more than 1,600 stuffed eggs. His response to her request is going to make the event even better.
“The American Legion has graciously donated their facility for the event,” she said. 
Everyone likes a snack at the Easter Egg Hunts, and this year will be no different. Tupy said the Legion will serve hot dogs for a nominal charge, starting at 5:30 p.m. with the eggs hunts starting at 6:30 p.m. Face painting will start at 5:30 p.m. and games will follow after the hunt. 
Tupy is excited about taking on the popular pre-Easter event and has something planned for the whole family.
“It will be a family event. I’m really, really excited,” she said. “We are going to have a blast. In addition to the egg hunts, we will have a drawing for gift bags for children ages 13 to 100.” 
Tupy explained that the eggs will be filled with a variety of things from premium candy to money.
The Easter Bunny will also be there for pictures. Parents and guardians are welcome to bring their camera to take pictures with the bunny, or organizers will provide pictures for a small charge. 
Parents are also reminded to bring an Easter basket or bag to collect the candy.
“I hope everyone brings their children,” Tupy said.
