Chamber, STJ to host Easter egg hunt

SELMA — Come hunt with The Selma Times-Journal, meet Mr. Bunny and win prizes.

It’s easy.

The Selma Times-Journal and Selma-Dallas County Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring an Easter egg hunt Saturday, from 2 until 3 p.m., at the Lions Club Fairgrounds next to the Old National Guard Armory on Dallas Avenue.

Children from 3 to 10 years of age are invited to come find eggs filled with candy. The person in each age group with the most eggs, 3-6 and 7-10, will win prizes donated by Pinebelt Wireless and Wal-Mart.

“Hop on over to the Lions Fair Park for our community Easter egg hunt,” said Sheryl Smedley, director of the chamber. “This colorful and speedy event not only provides fun and excitement, but allows our sponsors to showcase their businesses. If you’re a hare late, you will miss out on the surprises.”

First and second place winners in the 7-10 age group will receive either a Nintendo DS and a Sony Portable DVD player. First and second place winners in the 3-6 age group will win a Text and Learn Leap Frog game or a Scribble and Write Leap Frog game.

The event is on, rain or shine. Just drive out Dallas Avenue until you see brightly colored balloons at the Lions Club Fairgrounds.
