Kinsmen Dan Sample, Kinettes Cherie Sample and Carol Egan, along with Spawfect’s Lindsay Wegener head up Shelburne’s Easter Egg Hunt committee this year. The organizers have brought together a wide variety of activities and vendors to make for an event filled day at the annual hunt for chocolate goodies.

The big hunt will take place on March 31st outdoors at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex (CDRC.) The Easter Bunny is scheduled to visit and will leave treats for area little ones safely hidden in mounds of fresh straw. Children may delight in the hunt from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.

Starting at 10 am, upstairs in the arena, the event includes a huge number of area vendors displaying and selling their wares. Vendors will be available until 4pm along with various craft activities to keep kids entertained while Mom and Dad enjoy shopping.

The event is sponsored by the Shelburne Kinsmen and the Shelburne Kinettes, as well as Jungle Justin, Spawfect and John’s No Frills which, once again this year, will be supplying the delicious chocolate eggs for the hunt. Justin’s reptiles will teach children facts about his amazing creatures, as well as allow for holding and photos. “It is organizations such as this that allow events to occur by sponsoring, attending, donating and organizing,” says Dan Sample.

There will be a baseball themed activity hosted by Jr. Schooners fastball league; taekwondo moves with Shelburne BW Taekwondo; free balloons from Amber Borger real-estate; balloon twisting with Melissa Shipman; and face painting and henna art by Troupe-Adore. Troupe-Adore will be raising funds for Souphaus, a community funded restaurant offering dinner on Tuesday evenings at Trinity United Church in Shelburne.

Along with shopping and activities, Shelburne’s Kinette Club will be cooking for a cause, raising funds for various ventures by having the kitchen open. The Kinettes will be serving soup, sandwiches, hot dogs and other refreshments 10 am to 4 pm for all the hungry egg hunters and shoppers.

Pictures with the Easter Bunny are available with Shelburne photographer Brody Ireton. Lots O’Fun in Orangeville is donating LaserFun and Bazooka Fun Passes for a door prize raffle, and Jungle Oasis in Orangeville has also donated a 10 play-pass as a door prize.

A huge thank you goes out from the committee to the CDRC for allowing the use of the facilities to host the Easter egg Hunt. Kinsmen Dan Sample reminds residents to support their local arena, so it can continue to host local hometown events.
