Egg Fun Fills Esperance

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/5/24 | 4/5/24

ESPERANCE - The Easter Bunny was hard at work in the Village of Esperance hiding eggs for the anticipated hunters both young and young at heart. Rescheduled to Saturday, March 30, amongst remnants of last week’s snowstorm, the Esperance Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD) hosted another successful event. 

Even the blustery March winds could not keep the crowd of 40 from lining up in the Village Commons to start the annual Easter Egg Hunt. The judges split the group into two age groups and announced that there was one special Golden Egg to find. There was only one child in the newborn to 3 year-old category and 15 in the 4-10 year-old category but they were all very eggcited to start! With their own basket in hand, they were ready to fill them with as many brightly colored eggs as they could find. Emergency vehicles temporarily re-routed traffic from Church Street and Cumpston Street so the participants were safe to run across lots between the playground, the church and the museum grounds. These children were keen and quickly found all 500 eggs in 25 minutes. Angela Burman, EVFD Auxiliary President was eggcited to report that the plastic eggs were filled with fun trinkets, finger puppets, rubber ducks, and none with candy. Will Ward was the lucky hunter to find the Golden Egg winning a $5 bill. After they had their fill of Easter Egg hunting they each received a chocolate Easter duck homemade by Sharpe’s Sweets. 

A special thank you to Melissa Deffer and the EVFD Auxiliary for all their help.
