Local Business Owner Hosts Annual Easter Egg Hunt

North Bend's Bayside Terrace Senior Living hosted an egg hunt where children were able to meet with the Easter Bunny in front of elders and grandparents.

Some families came to the shelter just to see the animals and see the Easter Egg Hunt kick off.

"Some of them are in wheelchairs, some of them can't be very mobile", Dan Cox with Krewe of St. Andrews said.

"It also helps them interact with other children like them", Phillips said. His son, 16-month-old Dashiell Maranville, was born with two congenital heart defects.

"It's not just me, I'm just a vessel", Brown said.

The egg hunt at Ecole H.J. School was a fundraiser for the Sylvan Lake Spray Park.

In past years, she said, volunteers boiled and dyed 7,000 eggs at the Monterey Youth Center, starting a week before the hunt.

Red Bird said, "He gave all his eggs away, so we got a special set, set aside for him and we got him some, and then he went around and gave them all out. We have wheel chair accessible field and we use magnetic eggs", said Palmentieri.

For many families in east Missoula this egg hunt has become a tradition, one they can't take their kids to this year. Some exhausted egg hunters were carried away by the parents.

The event has also proven to be a great partnership for the 1st Binbrook Scouting Movement, who previous year, hosted their first pancake breakfast during the Binbrook Easter Egg Hunt in the Binbrook Agricultural Hall.

"Special eggs" with special messages, letting parents know their children had won a prize were also a part of the event including bicycles.

Carpenter said the dyeing process can be a lot of work, but that he's happy to put in the hours to be part of it.

"I liked making the eggs".

Each egg contained either a small toy, candy, or a ticket.

"I'm glad to be here", she said.

The artificial turf is "not good for staking (hunt areas) and hiding eggs", said Shannon Leon, interim recreation and community resources manager with the city.
