Hunting for fun at YMCA

Daily News Easter Egg Hunt Saturday

GREENSBURG – The Decatur County YMCA will host its annual Healthy Kids Day and the Daily News Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 12, providing a day of learning and fun to the children of Decatur County.

The egg hunt is for children from the ages of two to nine. The event will take place on the YMCA soccer field, rain or shine, so those interested in participating are encouraged to dress warmly in layers to be prepared for whatever the weather turns out to be. If the weather proves to be too foul for the hunt to take place outdoors, the YMCA wood gym has been reserved as an alternate location.

To take part in the egg hunt, hunters must be pre-registered. Parents can register hunters outside beginning at 9:30 a.m. The hunt will begin at 10 a.m. and will be divided into three different age groups: two to three, four to six, and seven to nine.

Parents may assist children in the two to three age group, but only with finding the plastic, prize-filled eggs. The Daily News asks that parents allow the children to pick up the eggs.

“This year’s hunt will include thousands of eggs stuffed with candy, small prizes and free tickets to local restaurants,” said Natalie Acra, event coordinator.

According to Acra, in addition to the other prizes, the local WalMart donated three bicycles to be given away during the hunt. One egg in each age group will contain a ticket which the lucky children can trade for a free bicycle.

“Don’t let the chilly weather keep you from coming to the egg hunt and Healthy Kids Day,” Acra said. “This is a great opportunity to have some free fun and don’t forget to bring your baskets.”

Many local businesses came together to pitch in their funds or services to make the event possible. Their generosity and support speak clearly about the Greensburg community and the kind of people who make their homes here.
