Updates for February 2024

Easter egg hunts are back! We've started updating the info for this year. Unfortunately MOST wait until the last minute (often just a week before) to publish their dates, times and details. We're updating their information daily as it comes in. We expect pages to be up to date by mid-March.

  1. When we CONFIRM an event for 2024, the date will be highlighted in pink, like this passage to make them easy to find as you scroll down the page.
  2. Hunts that were held in the past year or 2 but not yet confirmed for this year are in orange.
  3. The ones NOT in either orange or pink are more dubious - held in the past but not confirmed in the past few years, so just our best guess! These you must call or email to confirm before you go.

RELATED:

ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute cancellations, postponements or changes to locations due to weather (like heavy rains) or logistical problems, just click on the link to the event's website and (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website. Or use their site search for "Easter". Do let them know you found them here, so they will update us next year. Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to email, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to their websites, Facebook pages and calendars. Besides egg hunts, there are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and Easter parades to watch!

The parade part is the cars coming through. We can't let them in the building because of COVID restrictions, but in the event of inclement weather, we will have a walk-through in the building and keep everybody separate. If it's nice weather and we can have it outside, that will give us more flexibility. There will be stations and tables with themes and craft kits, manned by Auxiliary volunteers. Guests will receive gifts, play a Guess the Jelly Beans game for the chance to win an Easter basket, and can enjoy holiday music and see the Easter Bunny. Douglass suggested dressing in Easter finery. The event is open to the public not just children of VFW members. There is no charge, but donating an item for a food pantry is recommended. Collected food will be donated to a local food bank. (ADDED: March 13, 2021, Suggested by a visitor)
