Chocolate Egg Hunt

Chocolate Egg Hunt

Last spring, thanks to the amazing boost from Hamilton’s Chris Ecklund, we hosted our first Chocolate Egg Hunt in Victoria Park and Oxford Park.  With roughly 300 hundred children and youth who showed up hungry for chocolate, we decided that this amazing event had to keep running.  We’re happy to announce that we’ve decided to run the Chocolate Egg Hunt as an annual event. Easter weekend On Saturday, April 19th at 11:00 a.m., this year’s free Chocolate Egg Hunt will begin in Victoria Park.  Paper bags will be provided for the children to gather up their goodies in, but if you have a festive basket at home that you would like to use instead then by all means bring it along.  Each hunt site will be divided into two separate areas, one for toddlers and one for older children so as to give the wee ones a fair shot at some loot. Parent volunteers: The Strathcona Elementary School’s Community, Character & Caring Committee will be holding a Victoria Park clean-up night on Thursday, April 17th in order to help ensure that the park will be in great shape for all of the children to go off on their search.  We’ll have volunteers spread through the park on Saturday morning testing out their best Peter Cottontail impersonations as they spread the stash of chocolate eggs. If you are interested in giving a hand please email us: strathconacommunitycouncil@gmail.com so we can organize our volunteers...
