Make the McKenzie Connection!

A happy "Bunny Day"

Turnout was great at the McKenzie Valley Young Life’s Easter Egg Hunt at the McKenzie Community Track & Field. There was a special area for 0-4, and a timed release for the other age groups. Added activities included games like sack and three-legged races. Besides the free entry, the event generated donations towards the costs of going to camp for participants in the Young Life programs.

At the Walterville Grange Easter Egg Hunt, children of all ages were placed in groups to get a fair chance at finding eggs - and they did - not leaving one of the 1,200 behind. “It takes half an hour to put these eggs out,” said Vernon Herrick, “and 10 minutes to pick them up.”

The event also generated donations for new siding and windows for the Walterville Community Center.
