YMCA hosts Adult Easter Egg Hunt

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The second Clay County Adult Easter Egg Hunt has been scheduled for Friday, March 30.

The event will take place at the YMCA of Clay County, 225 E. Kruzan St., Brazil, in the grass field south of the facility. The hunt will start at 9 p.m.

YMCA CEO Deborah Plummer told The Brazil Times the event is specifically for individuals 18-older and those interested in taking part are asked to bring their own flashlights.

There is no cost to attend and the event is open to the public.

Several residents attended last year's event.

"I would say probably in the neighborhood of 40 people," Plummer said.

This year, Plummer said plastic eggs could be empty, or have prizes in them, including candy, gift certificates, YMCA T-shirts, day passes and more. In addition, she said the Y would give away two free gas cards.

The initial event was set in motion when local resident Nick French asked his friends through Facebook if they would be interested in attending an adult Easter Egg Hunt.

French then discussed the idea with Plummer and the hunt was born.

"I think that adults enjoy doing things they did when they were children," Plummer said. "It's something we'll try to do every year."

Plummer said this year's event was difficult to schedule due to Clay Community Schools Spring Break taking place next week.

"This year was a little tricky because of the timing," she said. "We realize that it could affect people's ability to attend."

Still, she said she believed the event would continue to be a success.

"We're excited," Plummer said. "I think it will be fun."
