Kiwanis is changing how we are doing Purcell's Easter Egg Hunt this year, because of COVID. We have decided instead of having the regular hunt, where the kids find the eggs, we are going to hand out bags with eggs in them to the children. We will have vehicles, located in the parking lot of the Purcell Multipurpose Center, 1400 Chandler Park Rd, with the bags for each age group. The age groups will be 0-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Once the child gets their bag, they can look in their eggs and if they have a prize egg, they can take it to the vehicle with their age group and collect their prize. We request that masking and social distancing be observed. The 2021 Easter Eggstravaganza will be on April 3rd. It will start at 9 am and end when all the bags have been handed out. A child must be present to get a bag.
