Placeholder Image
The Manteca Noon Kiwanis is looking for extra hands to help “stuff” approximately 8,000 to 10,000 eggs that will be used in the Saturday, April 3, annual Easter Egg Hunt that the club has been sponsoring every year for nearly three decades.

The “stuffing” party will be held on Tuesday, March 30, at the Prestige Senior Living located at 1130 Empire Avenue off East Louise Avenue in Manteca. It will begin at 9 a.m. but they will be “rock and rollin’ by 10 a.m.,” said George Montross, this year’s chairman of the egg hunt and the sergeant-at-arms of the noon Kiwanis.

The egg hunt will be held Saturday, April 3, which is the day before Easter Sunday, at Northgate Park across from Neil Hafley School. The egg hunt will begin at 11 a.m. Gates will open at 10 a.m.

Montross said they are also in need of donations for the raffle prizes that will be given away to the children that day. Each youngster participating will receive one ticket for the drawing which will be held at the conclusion of the egg hunt.

The major prizes are three bicycles, one for each of the three age groups in the egg hunt: 0-3 years old, 4-7 years of age, and 8-12 years.

In addition to the bicycles, there will be a variety of prizes that will be drawn, said Montross.

About 1,200 children are expected to participate in the Easter Egg Hunt.
