Candy, Small Toys and Plastic Eggs Needed For Upcoming Spring Egg Hunt At Community Center And Volunteers

The annual Spring Egg Hunt is coming up on March 26 at 10am sharp at Laurelhurst park for ages 12 and under.

And to make it as successful as past years, Cara Brown, the Recreation Coordinator, is soliciting donations of candy and small items for the 4,000 plastic eggs as well as for the prize baskets.

"We are expecting several hundred kids to participate again this year and would like to distribute enough eggs for all the kids to enjoy!" Cara told us.

Cara said that candy donations should be individually wrapped and fit in the plastic eggs.   Items for the prize baskets for ages 3 and under should not pose a choking hazard and for ages 4-10 could be such items as chocolate bunnies, sidewalk chalk, stuffed bunnies, any leftover birthday party prizes that people may have around the house such as bubbles, etc. 

Donations should be dropped off by March 23rd to the Community Center. Hours are Monday and Wednesday between 9-7pm and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 9-2pm.

Cara also is looking for volunteers to help at the event between 8:30am-11:30am.  Interested high School students will get volunteer credit.

"Please spread the word to friends and family who may also be interested in volunteering for this fun event!" Cara told the Blog Staff.

To sign up to volunteer and for more information contact Cara at 615-0617 or

Cara said "Thank you for your support, we look forward to hosting another year of this fun event!"
