The annual Northview High School Key Club Easter Egg Hunt took place Monday at the Linking Education to Adults, Adolescents and Preschoolers (LEAAP) Center, 501 E. Jackson St., Brazil.

Approximately 15 children in the Family Literacy Program took part in the event.

NHS Key Club advisor Pat Krider said the club's goal is to provide services to the community. The club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Brazil and is for students in grades 9-12.

Four Northview students -- sophomores Morgan Hofmann and Mickala Rickert, junior Hailie Trammell and senior Katie Sears -- all attended the event while several others contributed.

Sears, who also serves as the Club President, had never taken part in the event until Monday.

"I think it was fun," the four-year Key Club member said. "We all worked together. I'll most likely be coming to help next year."

The students, with help from LEAAP staff members, separated the egg hunt into two age groups, one for children 2-under and another for children 3-over. The Northview students hid eggs in various places for the children to find and also provided sacks.

LEAAP Coordinator Mary Yelton said parents of the children either attend adult education classes at the LEAAP Center or at Cumberland Academy.
