Brookfield’s annual Easter egg hunt is expanding to two hunts this year, one for younger kids, and one for teens ages 13-18, said township Office Coordinator Tabatha Dickson.
“Last year, our student-volunteers had just as much fun helping out as the little kids did participating,” Dickson said in a letter she is circulating to potential donors. “After seeing their excitement, this year we would like to give them the opportunity to participate by expanding the event by hosting a second Easter egg hunt for the older kids, which would have various gift cards as prizes.”
Both hunts will be held April 8, with the one for younger children set for 10 a.m., and the event for older children at 11:30 a.m., both at the township administration building, 6844 Strimbu Drive.
The hunts will go on rain or shine.
The township is seeking donations of candy, toys, stuffed animals, novelty Easter toys, gift cards, food coupons, individually wrapped cookies, juice boxes and money. Donations are requested by March 15, so organizers have time to buy anything they do not receive.
