Children from across Phil Campbell came out Saturday to Memorial Park for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The hunt, which was originally part of the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce slate of Easter Egg Hunts, was rescheduled from March 27 because of the weather.

The Phil Campbell hunt welcomed children from walking age through fifth grade to hunt down 1,000 eggs donated by the chamber – $50 of which, “prize eggs,” contained a voucher for $1.

Other goodies include six prize baskets and six bicycles.

I’m going to make a rough guess, but I think there were approximately 65-70 kids participating in the hunt,” said PC Councilwoman Lynn Landers. “I think we had an excellent turnout for this year’s hunt. Last year’s was canceled, as it was with most every other public event.”

Landers said as part of the fun, the city embraced a last-minute collaboration with the First Baptist Church.

“As it turned out, the First Baptist Church was hosting their own egg hunt and cookout. Both events joined hands and worked together. The early arrivals were invited over to eat and participate in the youth events at the church.”

Landers called it a win-win for both organizations.

“The children got to “double-dip” and have fun all morning,” Landers said.

“Saturday was the beginning of a new awakening for our town and the children. Hopefully, this year will be one of our best years yet.”
