The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Corowa Bap­tist Church with the sup­port of the Ro­tary Club of Corowa hosted its an­nual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sun­day in the re­vamped RSL Park.

More than 700 peo­ple at­tended the event, with more than 270 hunt­ing bags dis­trib­uted.

Ex­cited chil­dren col­lected about 5000 eggs hid­den around the park on what was a beau­ti­ful, sunny day.

Or­gan­is­ers thanked Ro­tary for cook­ing the sausage siz­zle and all pro­ceeds from do­na­tions at the bar­be­cue went to the Corowa Bap­tist Church.

The idea be­hind the hunt was to spread the joy of Easter and for the Bap­tist Church to hold its Easter Sun­day ser­vice out­side, which was at­tended by more than 220 peo­ple.

Face paint­ing was also en­joyed by chil­dren and live mu­sic was per­formed by the church band.

Or­gan­is­ers were thrilled with the turnout of peo­ple from Corowa, How­long, Al­bury and Wodonga.

Ex­cited egg hunters race to find the Easter eggs hid­den around RSL Park.
