Easter Egg Hunt on the Village Green

Pelham Parks and Recreation once again hosted its annual “Easter Egg Hunt” on the village green Saturday, April 12 where thousands gathered in the spirit of the holiday.  Organized by Pelham Parks and Recreation and Crossroads Church, who provided the many kid friendly bounce houses for the afternoon, the event was a wonderful way for families across Pelham to enjoy the upcoming Easter holiday on what seemed like the first glimpse of spring.

Crossroads Church, who has become known for its involvement in such events as the Pelham Community Spirit Group’s annual July 3 Independence Day celebration during the summer months, has been combining forces with Pelham Parks and Recreation for the past five years to provide a more efficient and cost effective way of supporting town events and to raise money for various charitable organizations.  This year the church was expecting donations to help support a newly founded school in Tanzania, Africa that aims to offer a free education to less fortunate woman and children who reside in the third world country.

The sun was shining bright on that Saturday morning as children could be seen enjoying the many activities provided from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., such as the bounce houses, face painting and the eagerly awaited Easter egg hunt.
