GALLIA COUNTY —No matter if you live in the city of Gallipolis or out in the rural Patriot area, there are organized egg hunts planned for the youth of our communities in celebration of Easter.
Gallipolis Parks and Recreation and the Gallipolis Junior Women’s Club are sponsoring the annual Easter egg hunt in the Gallipolis City Park on Saturday, March 30. The Junior Women’s Club will have games on the First Avenue/river side of the park beginning at 10 a.m. The Easter egg hunt will begin at 11 a.m. The Junior Women’s Club will also hold a bake sale in the same area. The Easter Bunny will be on hand to visit each child and have photos taken with him. Age groups to participate in the hunt are under one year, two, three to four; five to six; seven to eight; nine to 10; and 11 to 12 years.
The O.O. McIntyre Park District will be holding its annual Easter egg hunt at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 30 at the Raccoon Creek County Park. All participants should meet at the Wild Turkey #1 shelter to be divided into age groups for the hunt. There will be six separate age groups for children through age 12. All participants will receive a treat and the Easter Bunny will be available for pictures. Over 2,000 eggs will be hidden, as well as special prize eggs.
There are also numerous Easter church services planned for the weekend, and many are listed inside this edition of the Gallipolis Daily Tribune.
