Thanks to the Chelsea High School Key Club and the Chelsea Kiwanis Club, dozens of children had the opportunity on Saturday, April 15, to collect hundreds of Easter eggs.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt took place at the Chelsea Retirement Community where families gathered on a sunny spring morning. They were greeted by the Easter Bunny before the various egg hunts, based on age, got started.
“The Kiwanis slogan is ‘Kids need Kiwanis,’” said Jim Randolph, president of the Chelsea Kiwanis Club. “Indeed our focus is on serving the kids in the local area, so this fun event is a great match for the kids and the Key Club members.”
The preparation began a few days before the event when 35 CRC residents stuffed more than 1,500 eggs with pieces of individually wrapped candy and a few with special notes indicating larger prizes.
Despite all the preparation and anticipation, the egg hunts lasted only a matter of minutes, but opening up all their colorful eggs prolonged the fun on the day before Easter.
