ABATE revving up for Annual Egg Hunt

Greensburg — The American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE) will host the Second Annual Decatur County Rider’s Easter Egg Hunt at 10 a.m., March 30, at Rebecca Park.

According to ABATE County Representative Bill Wilber, the event will be divided into three age groups for children: Ages 4 and under; ages 5 to 7; and ages 8 to 10.

Additionally, there will also be a hunt held for Seniors, with prizes awarded in all age groups, Wilber said.

Age 4 and under winners will win an Easter basket, while winners in the age 5-to-7 group will receive a scooter. The 8-to-10-year-old winners will snag a 20-inch bike, and senior winners will claim two $25 gift certificates for dinner.

Wilber clarified that a male and female prize would be handed out in each age group.

“Last year’s hunt was attended by 122 kids,” he said. “We hid 3,000 eggs. We were extremely pleased with that number since it was the first one. This year, we’re hiding 5,000 eggs, so we’re expecting a bigger turnout. I certainly hope we have a bigger turnout; I don’t want to have to go hunting for a bunch of unclaimed eggs afterwards.”

The hunt doesn’t need volunteers or further donations, Wilber said — only kids and grandkids.

“All we need is for parents and grandparents to bring kids out to help find all these eggs,” he said.

He offered special thanks to Arbor Grove Village for donating 15,000 pieces of candy — enough for three pieces per plastic egg. Arbor Grove also donated the gift certificates for dinner.

“We’ve got a little bit of everything in our eggs,” Wilber said. “Chocolate, gum, taffy — you name it.”

He added, “I especially want to thank [Arbor Grove Marketing] Director Annie Adams for all her help.”

Saturday’s hunt will also include an appearance by the Easter Bunny.
