American Legion set to host Easter Egg Hunt
LUZERNE — American Legion Post 162 is planning to have its annual Easter Egg Hunt April 8.
The post has been having its hunt for over 25 years, according to President Betty Berry. She said turnout has grown from year-to-year and expects this year’s event to draw 100 kids.
“We have more people showing up,” Berry said. “We have people who are coming from out of town to show up for this.”
Once the hunt gets underway, kids will search for 2,000 eggs spread throughout the post. The Easter Bunny is set to make an appearance at the post on one of the Luzerne Fire Department’s trucks. Following the hunt, kids will get an additional bag of candy from the Easter Bunny and receive a lunch featuring hot dogs, cookies and potato chips.
Berry said parents should make sure their children are supervised during the event, especially ones who are younger. The hunt is divided into different areas based on the ages of the children who attended.
“That way we don’t have the big ones running over the little ones,” she said.
The Easter Egg Hunt is set to hop along from 1-3 p.m. American Legion Post 162 is located at 5390 Legion Drive in Luzerne.
