Chesy children go egg hunting

CHESAPEAKE — The air was crisp, but energy hot as little feet ran around the Chesapeake United Methodist Church Saturday morning in search of brightly colored eggs.

The church’s annual Easter Fun Day! Egg Hunt drew about 30 children and guardians.

Plastic eggs were scattered around the church, under branches, in bushes and tucked away in corners of the building.

“I like the candy inside the eggs,” Destiny Litchfield, 6, said. “My brother and I like to eat it all. I met the Easter Bunny. He eats carrots.”

After the hunt the kids went inside the church for food, fun and games. Cookies, punch and hotdogs were there for sustenance and the Easter Bunny stuck around for photos. Church members also set up Easter egg dyeing stations.

The Rev. Chuck Case said he enjoys putting on community events like this one, and is proud of his congregation for putting together a wonderful day.

“We’ve done this event for several years now, so we know what we need to get together,” Case said. “We get people in the congregation to donate eggs, candy and things like that. It’s just a great event and we are happy to open our doors to the community.”

The entire event was free for those who attended, including the photo with the Easter Bunny.
