After receiving many donations from the community, children gathered in two age groups and were sent on a ready-set-go mission to collect as many eggs as they could.
Some of the eggs had special stickers that signified a prize to be collected after the hunt.
There were 75 children in attendance and 500 eggs stuffed with candy and 17 prizes of stuffed animals given away.
Memorial Rec thanks all those who contributed donations to help make this year’s hunt a success.
