Annual Egg Hunt slated for March 24

On Saturday, March 24, 2018, La Porte City Specialty Care will be hosting its annual Easter Egg Hunt at 1100 Hwy. 218 North. The hunt officially begins with the 1:00 whistle and ends when all the eggs are collected. Children ages zero to 9 are invited to participate. Eggs are divided into three separate areas of the lawn, divided by age groups: ages 3 and under, 4-5 year olds, and 6-9 year olds.

There will be 2,500 eggs filled with candy laid out on the lawn, some with instructions to see the Easter Bunny for special prizes. After the hunt, cookies and punch will be served on the patio, weather permitting. If not, refreshments will be served inside. This event is open to the public and free for all.
The residents of the care center really enjoy preparing for this event and look to it with great excitement. They are the ones who fill every Easter egg with candy and frost every cookie served.

Participants are reminded to recycle the plastic eggs and are encouraged to empty them of candy and leave them at the facility so they can be reused next year. If coming inside, we ask guests to remove boots and shoes when entering in the building.

Parking is limited. Families are encouraged to ride the school bus that will shuttle riders from and to the city parking lot across from the Fire Station. The bus will depart from the city parking lot at 12:40 PM. Following the hunt and refreshments, the bus will make a return trip.

In the event of rain, the hunt will be postponed to the following Saturday, March 31.
