2018 Easter Egg Hunts

The annual Easter Egg Hunt, held on March 31st,  and the Teen Egg Hunt was held during the week of March 26th.

The teens searched for eggs hidden around town using clues sent to them on the popular mobile app, SnapChat.  Prizes were donated by many area businesses and organizations, including Checkerboard, Smokey Row, Looks Barbershop & Salon, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, Pleasantville Chamber, Dollar General Store, Frosty’s, and Casey’s General Store.

The traditional egg hunt for kids through 5th grade was held on a cold and windy Saturday with local companies, organizations, and individual donating candy and money to help support this event.  Donations were received from Peoples Bank, Checkerboard, Eastern Star, Stone Ridge Dental, Maeschen Ltd, Webb Shadle Memorial Library, Myers Insurance, and Our Union 4H Club.

Please let our area businesses and organizations know how much their support for these types of events and activities are appreciated.  Without their donations, we would not be able to host activities for our community!
