Emerald Isle Easter Egg Hunt
The Scavenger Egg Hunt begins promptly at 12:30p.m. for kids ages 9-12. It's the first year doing the scavenger hunt, so be sure to be part of the action. The hunt takes place on the community center grounds. Interested participants should meet at the gymnasium door at 12:30p.m. for further instructions. Easter treats are guaranteed for everyone, but the first team to complete the scavenger hunt gets the grand prize. Don't forget to bring your basket!

The Easter Egg Hunt begins promptly at 1p.m. for kids in two age groups: ages 3 and under and ages 4-8. Participants should be ready to go with basket in hand by 12:45p.m. because the whistle blows right at 1p.m. The egg hunt contains lots of prize eggs, but the golden eggs hold the awards. Find them if you can!
