OXFORD – The Oxford Rotary Club sponsored its 6th Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4. The free Easter egg event, which continues to grow bigger and better each year, took place in the safety of the Oxford Academy Primary School’s playground. Mother Nature surprised everyone with strong cold winds and intermittent snow, but plucky youngsters arrived bundled-up, with their parents in tow. They were ready to go hunting for thousands of Easter eggs.
Rotary members hid the brilliantly colored eggs all over the school playground for the children to find. Eggs were hidden in age appropriate hiding places made possible with snow fencing which helped section off an egg hunt area just for little ones in pre-school. The rest of the playground area worked well for the older children through fourth grade, where eggs could be hidden in more ‘challenging spaces.’
