SODA Easter Egg Hunt 2018 - Huge Success

Thank You Dearborn!!

2000 eggs, 60 special baskets, over 260 kids!!

This year's SODA Easter Egg Hunt took place on March 24th at Penn-Vassar Park. The weather was cool and breezy; but dry ground, the sun shining, and blue sky over head made for a great day in the park! Neighbors starting arriving early around 11:20 am. Kids were able to play games and win candy prizes before the hunt began.
At 12:05 pm SODA President Tim Harrison lead the crowd in a Homecomingesk count down starting from 10. At shout of "GO!" over 260 kids stormed the park looking for that special egg that might get them one of 60 special baskets to pick from. The 2000 plastic eggs spread out in three age grouped areas also contained candy or tickets for free ice cream from Lolly By Golly Sweet Shoppe. Within a minutes all the eggs were collected!
Even after the hunt was concluded and volunteers were done cleaning up, many neighbors remained in the park, played on the playground, and enjoyed the beautiful day in the park.

Special thank yous to Sarah Ford for organizing the hunt, to Woodside for the games & prize boxes, and to all the people and businesses that donated candy and items!
