Annual Easter Egg Hunt sure to be a crowd pleaser

Easter will return to Prineville on Sat., April 14 with the annual Easter Egg hunt sponsored by the Prineville-Crook County Chamber of Commerce, Quality of Life Committee.
   Leading up to the big hunt, a poster coloring contest will be offered to area schools. Posters have been distributed and the winners were to be notified yesterday. The 20 selected winners will receive a chocolate bunny donated by Rite Aid.
   The egg hunt will be held at two locations this year. The younger tots aged up to three will meet at Stryker Field at 2 p.m. and children 4 to 11 years old will meet at Ochoco Creek Park on the west end near the monuments also at 2 p.m.
   The Easter Bunny will be on hand for pictures again this year. There will be something special for every egg hunter. Included in the offerings is a golden egg for each age group. Golden eggs can be exchanged for prizes at the information table after the hunt.
   Prizes include coin sets donated by Bank of the Cascades and three stuffed bunnies donated by Rite Aid. Everyone is encouraged to wear their best Easter outfits.
   Assisting at the event is the Prineville Fire Department along with Mt. Bachelor Academy and Rimrock Trails who will be coloring the eggs and hiding them at both hunt sites.
   Arctic Circle, Price Slasher, Erickson's Sentry Market and Ochoco Plaza Thriftway are donating eggs.
   The Quality of Life Committee will be giving out prizes and hosting an information table for those needing assistance.
