More than 200 children participated in the Easter egg hunt at Sycamore Park in Batavia March 31.
Sponsored by the Clermont County Park District and the Batavia Rotary Club, the annual Easter egg hunt has become a local tradition.
“We have been holding the egg hunt for years.” said Rotary Club president Daren Donohoo. “We are always pleased to partner with the park district to provide the fun and pleasure that the Easter egg hunt provides for local children every year. It is also fun for us watching the enthusiasm and the excitement of the children.”
Two thousand eggs were dropped in six different age groups 10 and under for the kids to scramble around for. One egg in the area of each age group held a special prize and the lucky finder of that received a special Easter basket.
"We have outstanding community organizations and foundations like the Rotary Club," he said. "They allow us to nurture community building. This is an absolutely fantastic time for the community, especially families, to come out and bond with each other, interact, and mingle."
