Egg hunts abound this week

Bonnie Bluejacket Memorial Nursing Home will host an Easter egg hunt Saturday, April 19 for youngsters of all ages. The hunt, on the nursing home lawn, starts at exactly 10 a.m. so don’t be late.

Saturday evening the Herb Asp Community Center will be the site for a “roller skate egg hunt.” Children of all ages are encouraged to take their favorite basket or bag to the center at 6:30 p.m. and hunt for eggs on skates. There will be candy and prizes for everyone. The cost is $2 per person.

From 8:30-10 p.m. teens (from sixth grade through seniors in high school) take over the community center for a dance with an outdoor egg hunt thrown in just for fun during the evening. Cost is $2 per person or $3 a couple. The events are sponsored by the Greybull Recreation District. For further information call 765-9575.

The Shell Community Hall will host a community breakfast and egg hunt Easter morning. Breakfast is from 8-11 a.m. A full breakfast will be provided; those attending can bring fruit and/rolls to share. The Easter egg hunt starts at 10 a.m.

The Easter bunny will be out early Easter Sunday hiding his brightly colored eggs in the Greybull City Park. Youngsters 12 years of age and under can start hunting them promptly at 1 p.m., weather permitting. Make sure you get your youngsters there on time.

A special area of the park has been set aside for the younger children.

There will be candy, prizes and visits from both the Easter Bunny and the Greybull Lions.

The free event is co-sponsored by the Greybull Lions Club and the Uptown Café.
