The 2013 Children’s Easter Egg Hunt and Fun Run will be held March 24th, 2013 (at 2:00pm) at Portage West Middle School. This is a free event open to the community. Kids will hunt for Easter eggs in 2 groups: Little kids ages 5 and under will gather eggs in the “Easter Bunny’s Playground” while bigger kids ages 6 to 12 will scavenge for eggs on a short cross country course of about one mile.  Kids need to bring their own Easter basket. Refreshments and door prizes provided after the run!
