With poor weather conditions for April 20th. Our annual Easter Egg Hunt at Smiley Park, has been moved to April 27th. The start time will remain the same as the hunt will start at 10am. The event will be similar to hunts in the past as eggs will be placed in the outfields of our four baseball diamonds. Each field will be divided up by ages and will have a similar number of eggs an prizes in them. Each child will need to bring their own bag or basket to collect eggs.
