      The 52 Annual Kiwanis Sponsored Easter Egg Hunt....Gathering at 7:30 AM on March 30th, 25 Troop 801 Boy Scouts, 4 assistant scout leaders, 21 Key Clubbers, 10 Brea Club members and Madison Green, AKA 'the Bunny rabbit' along with Rick Ellis's coffee thermos's and Charlie's 2 dozen Jack's donuts prepared to make ready the Easter Egg hunt. This year Joe Salazar supplied about 100-200 small toys to be distributed on the park field just before the egg hunt by the Key Club volunteers..As in the past Dean Hall was the mastermind behind the planning, setup and program for this years Egg Hunt. Rick Ellis was the announcer and master of ceremonies.

        The Scout troop set up area and distributed eggs about the park. The Key Club distributed the toys about the periphery of the park and handed out the Chocolate Bunny's to the children as they returned the empty eggs from the hunt... Needless to say the bunny rabbit with the new bunny suit was a great hit with both the parents and the children. The Hunt started at 9:10 AM and the last chocolate bunny handed out at 10:15 AM....Thank you all for help making the event a success; especially Dean Hall for all the hours he spent putting the event together. After the Egg Hunt Joe Salazar set up the Key Club with the opportunity to fund raise by selling small toys at the event.. The Key club make $112 selling the helicopter toy.
