Annual Easter Egg Hunt

MARCH 27 @ 11AM
(rain date - Sunday @ 1pm)
Wm. Wilt Soccer Complex

Please join us for our Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Due to COVID we have purchased pre-filled eggs and will divide our age groups in order to be socially distant. Each group will go one at a time allowing parents to accompany each of their children to their appropriate area. Children must bring their own Easter baskets to gather the eggs and take them home. WE WILL NOT BE COLLECTING the empty eggs back this year. The Easter Bunny will be available for a socially distant picture from the gazebo!

Hosted by:
Harrison Township Recreation Commission, Harrison Township Police Department & Harrison Township Fire District.
