Easter Egg hunt planned March 27 in St. Robert along with book fair
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (March 13, 2010) — St. Robert city leaders will hold an Easter egg hunt again this year on Saturday, March 27.

“It is an opportunity to get the kids together and have something for them to do,” said St. Robert City Clerk Debbie Adkins. “Everybody needs to bring their baskets and their camera because the Easter Bunny will be there and you can have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny.”

A change this year is the Easter Bunny will be handing out candy for the event, which begins at 10 a.m. in the grassy area next to city hall.

Adkins urged parents to bring their children early since once the signal is given to start collecting eggs, the 500 to 600 children who attend usually collect the eggs very quickly.

While the Easter egg hunt usually lasts only a short time while kids run to collect the plastic eggs, the city is also sponsoring a book fair through the Books Are Fun organization that will run most of the morning and afternoon in the city council chambers.

“They have a whole assortment of books from kids’ books, cookbooks, and different things like that you can buy. It’s a good fundraiser for our park projects,” Adkins said.
