It’s almost Easter. Find those eggs!

  • Mar. 27, 2013 6:00 p.m.

Some island communities are planning special Easter events for this weekend. The Village of Masset is holding an egg hunt on Sunday for north end children under the age of 12, starting at the village office at 1 pm. Old Massett is entertaining the older kids with an all-island dance at the youth centre in Old Massett from 8-12 pm on Friday. The black-lights Bunny Dance will have a $5 entry fee, which will be waived for people wearing bunny ears. Port Clements will be having an egg hunt on Saturday morning at 10 at the community park. This is a change from previous years, explained Port Recreation Committee member Bev Lore, as it had been done at the end of Sunset Park in the past, but the committee decided the community park would be easier for parents. The Sandspit Recreation Committee is putting on an Easter egg hunt at the community hall between starting at 1:30 on Sunday. There will be prizes, crafts, games and music, said Sandspit rec member Audrey Putterill. Ms Putterill said the rec committee hadn’t been doing the egg hunt for many years and just started again last year with a very fun and successful event. She believes this year will also be well-attended by Sandspit’s younger residents. No word as we went to press about a Queen Charlotte/Skidegate event, but a QC community club volunteer said she believes there has not been anything planned.
