Three Hoboken Easter egg hunts this Saturday

The more successful egg-gatherers had a system.

The Morris Lions Club will again sponsor an Easter Egg Hunt for Morris children at Goold Park, east of Union Street (across from Morris High School) on Saturday, April 15, at 10:30 a.m.

The Wilmette Park District also announced its first ever Doggie Egg Hunt will follow the kids event at Gillson Park.

The main goal of the event is to provide a fun morning for local families in a handsome setting, says Craig.

The event originated on Facebook three years ago.

Bellissimo, Callaghan and Cozad hope to make the Easter egg hunt an annual event.

"We had close to 4,000 eggs and I think it's a wonderful experience for the kids to be out with their families in the sun", Mayor Luebs said. Humane Society of Scott County members get the egg hunt registration and bonnet contest both for $10.

"The weather turned out flawless, and we're just glad everybody could come out", he said, adding his plan is to come back even bigger and better next year. Grandmother Barbara Showalter said she was happy for him. Millie Molnar served as the Easter Bunny passing out candy to the kids. The event starts with a vehicle fair, then the hunt. "Maybe Zoe will be big enough next year", he said. "It just keeps growing".

Last year, there were 240 children in attendance and the goal is to meet or surpass that number this year.

Jorgensen has been the new pastor of Tomahawk for about seven months.

Creating an event like this hits home to Ramos. Volunteers scattered candy throughout the park and tried to guide children to the starting area.

"It's a great thing", she said. It's so heartwarming to see how much the families enjoy it.

When it comes down to it, Ramos has two goals she wants to accomplish for the egg hunt. "They are just going for what they get".

The event has already become so memorable for the kids that some of them even recognize Ramos when they showed up.
