Reminder – Optimist Club Easter Egg Hunt to be Held on Sunday, March 18

On Sunday, March 18, the UW-Whitewater/Community Optimist Club will be hosting the annual Easter Egg Hunt for the children of the Whitewater community. Come to the Whitewater Middle School, located at 401 S. Elizabeth St, from 2:00 pm-3:00 pm to kick off your spring festivities.

The Optimist Club encourages all children (fifth grade and younger) of the Whitewater community to bring a basket, bag, or anything else that may be able to hold all of the Easter eggs that they can find. There are five age groups of Easter Egg Finders; two years and younger, ages three and four, kindergarten and first grade, second and third grade, and fourth and fifth grade.  The plastic eggs found by the children can be exchanged for a small bag of treats.  A few “Special” eggs may be found by some lucky children—leading to a larger basket of treats.

Not only will children have fun participating in the Easter Egg Hunt, but they will also have the opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny and McGruff the Crime Dog!   The event will be held rain, snow, or shine!  It is sure to bring an anticipation of spring.
