Egg hunt is Saturday

POSTED: March 27, 2013 4:00 a.m.

Easter is this weekend and K.A.R.E. for Kids is ready for its annual egg hunt.

The hunt begins at 11:30 a.m. on March 30 at Veterans Memorial Park. The organization invites the community to come out for a lunch of hotdogs and more.

"This is about the 10th year that K.A.R.E. for Kids has hosted this event, but it goes back at least 25 to 30 years," said Calvin Byrd, K.A.R.E. for Kids president. "The egg hunt has a rich history in this county. I can remember doing it as a kid."

The Easter Bunny will be available for pictures, as well as rides by Wayne's Trains, inflatable play houses, face painting and a mini-hamburger eating contest.

K.A.R.E. for Kids would like to remind participants that the egg hunt will begin promptly at 2:30 p.m. and for participants to arrive at least 30 minutes early with their basket in hand in order to snag that perfect egg hunting location.

"It's really just another way for us to give back to the kids in this community," Byrd said. "It's what K.A.R.E. for Kids is all about. We're not just toys and clothes at Christmas. We want to give kids a reason to smile year round."

For more information, contact K.A.R.E. for Kids at (706) 216-5273.
