The Palatine Jaycees will be entertaining local children up to nine years old on Saturday, April 4th starting at 10:00 AM with an Easter Egg Hunt at Towne Square on Palatine Road in Palatine.
“We will be hiding 3,000 Easter Eggs filled with candy and prizes in the grassy area of Towne Square,” said Jennifer Ramello, Co-Chair of the project. “We will divide all the kids who wish to participate into groups by age. The youngest group will be for kids up to two years old, the next group will be three to five year olds, then six and seven year olds and finally eight and nine year olds. Each age group will be sent out separately to collect eggs.”
To add to the festivities, the Jaycees will also have the Easter Bunny attend the event. “Children will be able to have their pictures taken by their parents with the Easter Bunny for a small donation,” said Kelly Spratt, Co-Chair of the project.
Projects like the Easter Egg Hunt are just one of the ways the Jaycees give back to the community. Every year, the Palatine Jaycees conduct numerous programs to serve the community and accumulate funds for operation of the Chapter and community donations. Included in these projects are the Fourth of July Festival “(Hometown Fest), Christmas tree sales, Leadership Scholarships, Best Pizza Contest and others, which benefit the community directly and help raise money.
