The Civic organization, the Jasper Jaycees, were active Saturday morning with their annual Easter Egg Hunt!
Children between the ages of 2-12 years-old were already enthusiastic when the Jasper Jaycees gave the READY, SET, GO signal at 10am to launch the egg hunt.
The children and their parents explored the playgrounds of the Jaycee Park where the area was prepared, depending on 3 age group categories from 1-2 years, 3-5 years, and the remaining 6-12 years of age, where some eggs were placed more upfront so that it would be easier for the younger children to find them. Simultaneously, children were also invested with playing on the playground swings, jungle gym, and slides.
This Easter event is among the various projects that the Jasper Jaycees put on for the community. The Easter Egg Hunt event occurs annually and has been ongoing for about 30 years.
Jasper Jaycees-Vice President, Ana Meneilly, spoke about the abundant turn out of families for this year…
She added that they will continue to do collaborations with the VUJC student activities group for future community events. Meneilly also highlights the Jasper Jaycees Clubhouse at the park where the organization meets to plan successful events such as the Easter Egg Hunt…

The egg hunt lead to the meet and greet with the Easter Bunny himself! The line was long and extended with parents forming in line waiting with their egg hunters to take a picture. The wait lasted longer than the actual egg hunt, as many children & families wanted a picture with the Easter Bunny.
