Easter Egg and Scavenger hunts scheduled for Easter weekend

EMT Trissa Nesbitt with the Grand Prize Switch for Friday’s Scavenger Hunt.

The EMTs are working on preparing the eggs for this year’s Easter Egg hunt.  The City of Malad, Oneida County, and Malad Valley Chamber of Commerce have all contributed funds for the Easter Egg hunt this year, which is being run and organized by the EMTs, who wanted to make sure they had a community project on their schedule for
the year.

This will be the third year that the EMTs have been in charge of the hunt.  If you’ll recall last year, there is little chance that the weather will not be an improvement.  Last year’s late winter resulted in snow and mud still on the ground during a cold Easter morning.  The forecast for this year at the very least looks warmer, although a slight rain is in the forecast.

This year will also be different in that the event will also include a separate section of the park set aside for those with special needs.  It was reported by one parent last year that the commotion and stimulation of the hunt was overwhelming for their child.  The EMTs decided to create a calmer, less chaotic hunt for those interested in a different experience.  The hunt will take place at the same time, 10 a.m. Saturday March 30 on the southwest ball field.  

Also, this year will feature a Friday Scavenger Hunt for ages 13-18, who are often excluded from the hunt itself.  The Scavenger Hunt will take place from 12:00 to 4:00 on Friday.  Tickets can be picked up at the Fire Station, and will contain clues to locations within the town boundaries.  Participants will need to get a stamp from the locations involved, and submit them at the end of the hunt.  Prizes will be awarded to all participants, and completed entries will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize Nintendo Switch.

Come out Easter weekend to support the EMTs, and give your kids of any age and need requirement something fun to do!
