    50th Annual Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt

    In 1962, The Kiwanis Club of Brea held their inaugural Easter Egg Hunt.  Fifty year’s later they continue their tradition with pride and spirit. “Some things have changed since then, with plastic eggs instead of dyed “real” Easter eggs,” says, Dean Hall, a long-time member of the club.  In preparation for the big day on Saturday, they are congregating at the club tomorrow to fill a rather large order: 15,000-20,000 pieces of candy will be filled in plastic eggs by the Kiwanis and those family members they enlisted for the job!

    According to Dean, in the early morning hours of this Saturday, April 7, 400 children will line-up at the amphitheater at Arovista Park. With so many children, organization is the key to the Kiwanis success as there are three age categories: Pre-school, kindergarten-first grade, and second–third grade, says Dean.  At approximately 9:00 a.m. the children will be released in their designated areas to go on a fantastic egg hunt.  After the Easter egg hunt, each child receives a chocolate Easter bunny.  Also on hand is the friendly Easter Bunny, who is available for pictures before and after the egg hunt.

    Cheers to the Kiwanis Club of Brea for creating fond “Easter Egg Hunt” memories for thousands of children over the years.  Talk to Kiwanis members and their eyes twinkle to play a part of this grand event.  It's a gratifying experience for everyone involved!
