Easter Egg Hunt
in Enfield

For many people, Easter Egg Hunts are a fond memory of their childhood. East Hants Ground Search and Rescue is making this memory a reality for kids with their annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Lion’s Den in Enfield on Saturday, April 8th.

This year, they will have over 10,000 eggs, 2 standard egg hunts at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. and a sensory hunt at 12 p.m. Registration is open until 15 minutes before each hunt. Cost is $5 for children 4 and older, $3 for children under 4. Come early if you can! Bring your basket and best of luck!

There will also be a BBQ and bake sale, fun and games. They are also currently holding an online auction which is open until April 7th.

Support our Programs and
Get Recognized!

Often, one of the biggest challenges in our busy world is to get recognized amidst the hustle and bustle. People are more distracted than ever and advertising costs lots of money to reach the right audience.

In an effort to raise funds for our programs, we have vastly expanded our Corporate Support Program to include a variety of ways for you to get promoted while helping us bring much needed programs to our community.

Some examples of recognition include:

  • $500 – A link to your Facebook page and your logo on a Facebook post for funding a re-fill of our Community Freezer
  • $450-$750 – Advertise on the side of a Community Rider van for one year/50,000 km, whichever comes first
  • $500 – Get your ad in this newsletter once a month for a year! Great opportunity to be paired with local community content
