Kids celebrate Easter

April 12, 2013

Despite the rainy and cold weather, 90 children participated in Club Dysart's Easter Egg Hunt at the Dysart City Park on March 30. A number of area businesses donated to the event, allowing all of the children to choose three eggs in the Easter Egg Hunt to trade in for three prizes. The Easter Bunny even paid a visit.

After the Easter Egg Hunt, many of the children headed over to Norma Anders Library for Easter activities. Each of the children guessed how many jelly beans were in a jar for a chance to win the candy. Children's Librarian Rachelle Frost read two Easter-themed books to the children and led the children in an animal sound game for a chance to win prizes.

The library staff hid 503 Easter eggs throughout the library for an Easter egg hunt. Two special eggs were hidden and the two children who found these eggs received a book each. Eight children found special eggs which they were able to trade for goodie bags.
