Kids scramble for eggs at Jersey City motorcycle club Easter egg hunt

Kids scramble for eggs at Jersey City motorcycle club Easter egg hunt

Firefighters and volunteers began stuffing plastic eggs for the department's Easter Egg hunt back in February, said event organizer Rhonda Letcher.

"It's always about the kids at the end of the day", Larson said. "In years past it has been outside, but in the past five years it's been inside".

"I liked giving kids that were crying one of my prize eggs and I shared some of my eggs with people that missed out", Chartier said.

After the hunt, participants were treated to hot dogs and chips, donated by Konopelski Katering in Sinking Spring, and cupcakes for dessert.

Despite an advertised 15,000 eggs scattered across the garden one upset customer said she watched staff members wheel in only "four boxes of eggs" in to the free event.

Before the egg hunt, it was standing-room only inside the Danville Community Market, as hunters ate a hot dog lunch served up by George Washington High School basketball players and cheerleaders.

"It was fun", said Amarianna Bradley, 6, of Ashtabula, as she carried away many eggs in her Easter basket.

Helen Robinson lifts up the rope as the children pour into Dobbins Heights Community Park to search for Easter eggs on Monday.

"I love these kids and I love my community", Robinson said.

"It's a win-win", she said.

People who never exercised scored the lowest on the puzzle and those who were keen athletes came out on top.

Inspired by a national Leo movement, the Mercer Leo Group now has 28 members and Minisan said 11 of them were an active part of Saturday's festivities.

"It's just wonderful that they would even think to do that for us", said Sturgell.

The boys' mum, Donna, said: "Thank you to every single person who has helped my boys in their appeal".

Amador hoped the families that came out had a good time. "The kids had fun, and the families had fun together".
