Clintonville’s 2011 Easter Egg Hunt has been scheduled for Saturday April 23rd at Bucholtz Park. Once again the Park and Recreation Department is organizing the event. As always, lots of help is needed to make the event a success. In past years as many as 500-600 area youth have taken part in the Easter Egg Hunt, although in recent years the numbers have been more in the 200-300 range, with 232 taking part in 2010. The department is seeking monetary donations to purchase prizes and candy to be given away during the Hunt, also any items that can be used as prizes, plastic bags to put the prizes in, as well as volunteers to help with various aspects of the event. The Hunt costs a significant amount of money, which the department is expected to raise through donations, in lieu of using tax dollars. Businesses, organizations and individuals interested in helping out are asked to contact Dick Writt at the Park and Recreation Department 823-7660. On Saturday April 23rd, two hunt times have been set up – 10 am for those youth 5 and under and 10:30 am for youth age 6-10. 1000 plastic eggs will be hidden in the park. Each egg when found and turned in will entitle the youth to a specail prize. The number of eggs that each child can find and turn in will be limited. Any child not finding at least one egg (which is highly unlikely) will still receive a prize. The Easter Bunny will be making a special appearance at the Easter Egg Hunt once again this year, and it is hoped that several other friends of the Easter Bunny will be present as well.
