Kudos for a great hunt

The Scappoose Easter Egg Hunt was fun for all this year! We were able to hide over 5,000 eggs filled with candy and prizes at the Grant Watts Elementary playground.

The Scappoose Kiwanis Club would like to thank the following community members for their generous contributions to the 2011 Easter Egg Hunt:

Ace Hardware Scappoose, Columbia NW Heating and Air Conditioning, Family Vision Clinic, J and J Automotive, Means Nursery, the Jim Means Family, Scappoose Garden Club and St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union.

I would like to thank Carol Girt and Karen Stoel from the Scappoose Kiwanis Club for all their hard work in organizing this event this year. A big thank you goes to Principal, Dana Larson and Grant Watts Elementary for the use of their playground fields for our event. We would also like to thank Principal, Kelly Powell and Petersen Elementary for the use of the cafeteria for stuffing the eggs.

I would also like to thank the Scappoose Girl Scouts and Boy Scout Troop 294, and all the other volunteers that helped to fill the Easter eggs, hide them and clean up after the event.

Finally, we would like to thank all the local children and their parents for coming to the event, and for supporting our activities throughout the year. We will see you all next year!
