Community support made for happy Easter

Published 9:21am Thursday, April 4, 2013

On Tuesday, March 23, many children were thrilled to greet the Easter Bunny arriving in a shiny fire truck and hunt Easter Eggs in the 2013 Ironton Easter Egg Hunt, organized by the Ironton Business Association, the Ironton Fire Department, and the Ironton Health Department.

The children in various age groups hunted more than 1200 prize filled eggs, and many received Easter baskets, stuffed animals, and gift cards and certificates.

This year’s event was a success, in great part because of the may donors and volunteers that shared their time and resources. My sincere thanks to Rent To Own, BC Tool Rental, A Touch of Grace, the IBA, Barker Shop, the IFD, Child Welfare Club, Ironton Health Dept., Friends of Ironton, Rax Roast Beef, Open Door School, Herb and Laura Brown Family, Boomer’s, Peddler’s, St. Joseph School, Bob Clyse, DESCO, Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, Brent Pyles, Giovanni’s of Ironton, and Juanita Dalton.

Our community has much to be proud of and this event played and important role in the continuation of that pride and heritage. Thank you all.
