Independent Editor,

Another fantastic Easter celebration was realized Saturday, March 31 at Perry City Hall, thanks to several people and organizations. Mother Nature even held off the rain until the event was finished.

Gratitude is expressed to Perry Baptist Church and its youth group for a fantastic egg hunt that featured more than 15,000 eggs filled with candy and gift tags, plus bikes, scooters and several Easter baskets given as special prizes for the kids. Double kudos to the Perry Baptist Youth Group!

Thanks also to the dedicated volunteers who are always there to help and enjoy being there for the community and the kids. Warm hugs of appreciation to Judie Hempstead, Art Ackley, Shirley Smith and Perry High School varsity bowling coach Billie Hurley and her magnificent team members, Ms. Easter Bunny (M. Miller), Deenie Miller and Devin Miller, who captured the memories on the film.

Thank you also to the Perry Area Lion and Leo clubs, always a favorite with event patrons. Appreciation is also extended to PNC Bank of Perry for sponsoring candy treats for this year’s event.

All of these volunteers and contributions greatly contributed to the success of the event. To view photos of this year’s event, persons may log onto the city website,

Thanks again for another great Easter Egg Hunt and Eggstravaganza.
