Farwell’s first annual Easter Egg Hunt was a great success, said Farwell Farmers Market Manager Tracy Lee. “We had more than 200 youngsters come and participate. We had raffles for the kids including baskets filled with outside toys and candy and an outdoor multi-use game set and a McDonalds gift card. The winner of the Easter bingo won a 2 pound chocolate Easter Bunny and youngsters participated in a scavenger hunt.
Over 6,000 eggs were hidden in the Village Park. The event was sponsored by Surrey Township, Surrey Township Library, The Village of Farwell and the Village Parks and Recreation, Garfield Township Fire Department and JBC Golf Carts. “Without the sponsors we could never have made this happen,” Lee said.
