RACINE — Hundreds of eggs, dozens of children and some great prizes.
Children from ages 1-12 spent a little time on Saturday on the hunt for Easter eggs as part of the annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Friends of the Library. The event takes place each year at the Racine Branch of the Meigs County District Public Library.
Prizes included candy which was in the eggs, large and small stuffed animals and buckets full of books.
Children were also served refreshments following the egg hunt.
Saturday was also the annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Syracuse Volunteer Fire Department. According to the department’s Facebook page, a total of 51 bicycles were given out to children as part of the event.
