This year's Community Easter Egg Hunt in Trenton is planned this Saturday morning at 10 o'clock at Moberly Park.
The Trenton Kiwanis Club is hosting the event---which in
past years has been hosted by the Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce.
Kiwanis Club President, Kara Helmandollar, says children and their parents should gather in the grassy area south of the enclosed shelter house prior to the start of the hunt. Children should take their own basket. There will be age divisions for children ages 3 and younger, 4 through 6, and 7 through 10. Moberly Park will be sectioned-off for different age groups to hunt for candy and other prizes. In addition, 1 egg in each age division will contain a grand prize certificate. Those persons will receive a filled Easter basket.
The road through Moberly Park is to be closed for the safety of those attending the event. Persons are asked to park in the upper Moberly lot near the enclosed shelter house or in the lower lot near the swimming pool. Persons parking in the lower lot are asked to walk up the road to the enclosed shelter house so they do not disturb the areas to be hunted throughout the park.
The Trenton Fire Department and the Grundy County Ambulance Service are to have vehicles and staff at the park around 9:30 Saturday morning. Trenton Kiwanis Club President, Kara Helmandollar, said children are encouraged to see the fire truck and ambulance and visit with their personnel. She also said an Easter photo area is to be under the porch of the shelter house. Parents are encouraged to take their cameras.
Persons wishing to make a donation to offset the costs of the event are asked to contact Kara Helmandollar (at Dave's Body Shop) at Trenton.
