Kin Club Easter Egg Hunt back for 37th year

Age-appropriate egg hunts will be held. At each winery, participants will collect as many Easter eggs as possible and whoever has the most at the end of the tour will receive a free bottle of wine.

Families are about ready to hop to Kin Park for the 37th annual Kin Club of Fort St. John Easter Egg Hunt. "It's a family tradition and it's something that they like to do and they get to see kids that they go to school with", said Michelle Pont.

The Easter Bunny will be hopping by the Delphos Public Library from 9:30-11 a.m. on April 15 to visit with children ages 0-8 for breakfast and activities that include face painting, egg hunt and games. Parents wanting pictures of their children with the bunny should bring a camera.

It will take place at Kiwanis Park, 303 W. Flying Circle Drive, next to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church off 4J Road.

Big sacks of candy are kept in case children are not able to get candy before it is gone because the Kiwanis club doesn't want any children to go home empty-handed. The hunt will be divided into age groups of infants to 3 years-old, 4-7 and 8-11.

There are several Columbia area egg hunts scheduled.

Boggs said filling the eggs is a good experience and fun.

To aid in spreading his wealth, the Easter Bunny phoned the NEWSpapers of Iowa County to tell when he'll be stopping at some of our area towns. Staff and volunteers will have about 15-20 minutes after each group finishes, to set out eggs for the next group.

Not only are there great egg treats, there will be games like pin the tail on the bunny, ring toss, eggs races and more. In the case of all Madison Exchange Club's fund raising projects, almost half of its proceeds go towards aiding the all-important cause of preventing child abuse.

"I think it's great to build those skills now because the children are energetic and like to help", Prokop said. Meet in the football grandstands of the Corvallis Community Events Center just north of Corvallis.
