We are preparing for our annual Easter Egg Hunt on March 24 and need help in filling the eggs. There are bags of empty Easter eggs in totes in the basement and in the Welcome Center. Please take a bag, fill the eggs with candy or small prizes and return them by March 18. (If you have small prizes instead of candy, please put a note in the bag so we can give them to the appropriate age group).
