The New Melle Chamber of Commerce will host their annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at New Melle Sports and Recreation. The event will include the Second Annual Adult Egg Hunt to benefit Cystic Fibrosis. There are several families in the New Melle / Defiance area affected by the disease.
The children’s hunt is free and freatures opportunities to win wonderful prizes provided by donations from local businesses. Other activities include pictures with the Easter Bunny (bring your own camera), plus games/activities sponsored by local businesses, beverages provided by the New Melle Fire Department, cookies and doughnuts from the City of New Melle, and thousands of eggs stuffed by Boy Scout Troop 856 with donated candy.
The Adult Easter Egg Hunt will follow the children’s hunt, at approximately 10:30 a.m. (Must be at least 18 to participate.) There is a $10 entry fee for the adult hunt which will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Major sponsors for the adult hunt are Ryan Sanford-Equity Prime Mortgage, and Rich and Lori West-Overstock Outlet, Wentzville.
Many local businesses give generously to this event every year, making it possible to award awesome prizes, bicycles, and great attendance prizes for adults and families, as well as giving their their time and talent to make this such a fun, family-friendly community event.
