Easter in the Park

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY SARAH DEAN

Those look­ing for a fun way to spend their Easter Sun­day should head over to Corowa RSL Park for the town’s Great Easter Egg Hunt.

The Corowa Bap­tist Church with the sup­port of the Ro­tary Club of Corowa will once again host the free event on Sun­day, April 1.

Bap­tist Church mem­ber Michelle Black said the event had be­come a pop­u­lar Easter Sun­day tra­di­tion for Corowa fam­i­lies and vis­i­tors to the town.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to come with your loved ones and par­tic­i­pate in an event to help cel­e­brate Easter,” she said.

“Kids love the pup­pet show and there’s some­thing for all ages.

“It’s a big event on the life of our church and com­mu­nity and we are look­ing for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing with many on the day.”

No ex­pense had been spared with 4000 eggs or­dered for the big day. A church ser­vice will kick off the fes­tiv­i­ties at 9.30am. There will be many ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing face paint­ing, a bub­ble ma­chine, draw­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, a cof­fee cart, and a Pup­pet Show at 10.50am, fol­lowed by the pop­u­lar egg hunt.

Choco­late eggs in three dif­fer­ent sizes will be hid­den in places around the park for the ex­cited chil­dren to find and col­lect.

Hunt­ing bags will once again be pro­vided, so that ev­ery child re­ceives a fair and equal por­tion of eggs.

Fam­i­lies are asked to look out for the large flags where the chil­dren’s ages will be clearly no­tice­able be­fore as­sem­bling for the hunt.

The egg hunt will be bro­ken up into cat­e­gories in­clud­ing preschool age chil­dren (up to four years old), in­fants (kin­der to year 2) and pri­mary school age chil­dren (year 3 to 6).

Vol­un­teers in­clud­ing lo­cal church youth will help co­or­di­nate the event and will be wear­ing match­ing flu­oro vests to help guide our fam­i­lies and chil­dren to the right ar­eas.

The Ro­tary Club of Corowa will have a bar­beque avail­able for a gold coin do­na­tion. The church will pro­vide water and Pri­mas on the day. En­try will be via the RSL Club carpark.
