Both Mennonite Memorial Home, Bluffton, and Hilty Home, Pandora, will hold their Annual Easter Egg Hunts this year one week apart. Both hunts are for younger children accompanied by an adult and will be held rain or shine.
The MMH Hunt is scheduled for Saturday, April 13 starting at 10 a.m. Due to the W. Elm Street construction, the activity has been moved to the practice soccer field near the tennis courts on the Bluffton University campus. Access is from Rosenberger Drive. Kids can participate in one of two age groups; 3-4 and 5-8 and register to win one of four Easter baskets. Doughnuts will be available during and after the hunt.
The Easter Egg Hunt at Hilty Home will take place on Saturday, April 20, starting promptly at 10 a.m. There will be three age groups; 3 and under, 4-6 and 7-10 with a prize for each age group. An Easter Bake Sale by the MHCO Service Group will run from 9:30-11 a.m. and feature cookies, cinnamon rolls, cakes and more. Proceeds from the sale will benefit MHCO and Hilty Home projects.
Participants should bring their own baskets or bags for collecting eggs. Parents should bring cameras for pictures with the Easter Bunny. Families may want to show up a few minutes early as the hunt goes quickly once it starts!
The MHCO Easter Egg Hunts are supported by Community Markets and McDonald’s of Bluffton.
