200 children find 2,000 eggs at Community Egg Huntby The Whitlock on March 30, 2016
More than 200 children found 2,000 eggs at the annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at The Whitlock Saturday, March 26.
According to Trevor Mikel, president of The Whitlock Board of Directors, this was the second year The Whitlock teamed up with the Bremen VFW Auxiliary to hold the event. “The residents love it,” Mikel said. “There’s a build-up of excitement here in the days leading up to it.” Mary Town, president of the Bremen VFW Auxiliary, enjoys the event. “It’s wonderful,” Town said. “The children love it. I love to see a smile on the kids’ faces and watching them play.” Town appreciates the partnership with The Whitlock. “There’s a lot more open space here. This helps our whole community.”
On Thursday, March 24, Whitlock residents and board members got together with members of the Auxiliary to fill the eggs with candy or prize tickets. “We all worked together to fill the eggs,” Town said.
Sixty children who found lucky eggs received their choice from a table of prizes ranging from giant chocolate Easter bunnies to footballs to stuffed animals and more. The prizes were made possible through community donations. “The community is very supportive,” Mikel said.
