The Brookfield Township Police Department has held its annual Easter Egg hunt in and around the township administration building for more than 20 years. The hunt has finally outgrown the venue. This year’s hunt will be held March 30 at Brookfield Township Community Park, 7291 Stewart Sharon Road.

“We were so congested up here last year,” said Tabatha Dickson, township office coordinator who oversees the hunt.

The park has a larger space in which to hide eggs, and more parking, she said.

There will again be two hunts: one for children up to 12 at 10 a.m., and one for middle and high school students ages 13 to 18 at 11:30 a.m. While the younger kids primarily hunt for candy and toys, the older kids have a shot at getting store and food gift cards and coupons, and larger items such as sports balls.

The department is accepting donations of money, toys, stuffed animals, candy, gift cards, food coupons, individually wrapped cookies and juice boxes.

Dickson said she also needs Easter baskets, either empty ones or ones that the donor fills with goodies.

Donations are requested by March 15 and can be dropped off weekdays at the administration building, 6844 Strimbu Drive.
