EASTER EGG HUNT A GREAT SUCCESS

Hundreds of children filled Kirk Park for the annual Helen Lehmann Memorial Library Easter Egg Hunt.  Families gathered under the shady oaks to watch their children search for eggs.  There was a special section for toddlers so they wouldn't have to compete with the older children.  Eggs “mysteriously” continued to appear in the toddler section so that everyone went home with some eggs.   Inside the community building children played games, had their photos taken with the Easter Bunny and sampled cookies.  Outside in Kirk Park, the Fire Department with Sparky the fire dog kept their grill smoking with free hot dogs and drinks for everyone. No one left without candy and a prize. 

The inspiration behind this year's activities was our own Kathleen Gifford, the town's Librarian. She has grateful thanks for everyone who donated prizes; Marge Gehring, Green Mountain Pizza, Hungry Howie’s, Sky Zone, Pizza Hut, Plaster Cottage, McDonald’s, Ritters, Little Caesars, Dunkin Donuts, Steak and Shake and Publix for being so generous.  She would also like to give a special thank you to Sam Gifford from Bimbo Bakeries for all of the donations he gives throughout the year.  Also a BIG thumbs up to Lori, Mallory and Sandy for all their hard work and dedication and to all the volunteers and the Montverde Fire Department for a making it such a special occasion and a job WELL DONE !!!
