Race for prize eggs
Optimist Club stuffs 14,000 eggs with candy; select eggs hold prize tokens
An estimated 800 people came out for the Kutztown Optimist Club’s annual Easter Egg Hunt held at Kutztown Park on March 31.
The Club scattered 14,000 eggs stuffed with candy on the park grounds for the different age groups ranging from 0-2 to adult. Select eggs were stuffed with prize tokens for toys and M&Ms.
“We do this every year for the kids,” said Kutztown Optimist Any O’Neil. “Everything we do is for children.”
Just watching the children enjoy the event makes it a special event for the optimists.
“It’s a lot of work but we have a lot of groups who help,” said O’Neil. “It’s a lot of people who help to make this happen.”
