Easter egg hunt thanks community for support


April 01, 1997|By Sherry Graham | Sherry Graham,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

A FAVORITE springtime tradition continued last weekend as area youngsters were invited to hunt for Easter eggs at Carrolltowne Elementary.

The family event has been sponsored by the Eldersburg Super Fresh for the past six years.

"It's our way of thanking the community for their support," said Dan Hundertmark, a Super Fresh employee and one of the event's organizers.

Early weather predictions for Easter Sunday were cause for concern, but the clear skies and light wind made the afternoon perfect. Usually held on Palm Sunday, the event was pushed back a week because Easter came so early this year.

A dozen or so Super Fresh volunteers were prepared for the crowd with hundreds of free hot dogs, soft drinks, snacks and ice cream treats. The volunteers prepared 2,000 colored eggs for the hunt.
