Edmonson County Parks and Rec hosted the annual Community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 3rd. The popular local event was cancelled last year due to the COVID pandemic so local organizers were happy to be able to bring back the event for 2021.
"Our local Parks and Rec work hard to bring events like this to our local community," said Program Director of Parks and Rec John Kiernan. "Having to cancel last year was unfortunate for our kids but since cases are down and we can provide these types of events safely, we were excited to be back this year."
Kiernan said over 600 kids attended the event, which was held at the HWY 70 Ballpark. Local Beta, FFA, and Drama Clubs, as well as Peer Math helped stuff the eggs with prizes and candy. The event was co-sponsored by Brownsville Missionary Baptist Church and Hodges Five-Point Farms.
"As always, we thank our sponsors," Kiernan added. "We are grateful for our local organizations and businesses that support our local programs."
