Getting ‘egg-cited’ for the hunt

April 10, 2014

POINT PLEASANT — Easter Eggs will be rockin’ and rollin’ next Saturday, April 19 during the City of Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church’s Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt.


The hunt starts promptly at 11 a.m. at Harmon Park for children ages one t0 12. There are five different age groups for the event which are ages one-two; three-four; five-six; seven-eight; nine-12. Only those in the one-two year old age group may have a parent help them hunt for eggs. Also, any hunters of any age who are physically handicapped may also have a helper for the hunt.


When the whistle sounds at 11 a.m., the hunt begins in all age categories and is over when the last egg is found. Those who are planning on attending the event should come early to get a spot and be ready when the whistle sounds.


This year the Presbyterian Church has purchased nearly 3,000 plastic eggs, each one stuffed with candy. Church members volunteer their time stuffing the eggs in preparation for the hunt weeks in advance. In addition to candy in the eggs, the church provides additional prizes, including a grand prize in each division.


The church has been organizing the hunt for at least the last four years at Harmon Park and for several years before that at Krodel park.


Again, the entire event is free to the community. The egg hunt is an outreach project the church offers for the entire community.
