Easter Egg Hunt Brings Festive Fun to Newell’s Youth

Newell News

NEWELL—On Saturday morning, children and families gathered at the Newell school football field for the Newell Community Club’s annual Easter egg hunt. This event has long been a yearly tradition in Newell, bringing the community together to celebrate the holiday in a classic, fun, and festive way. The chilly weather did not stop anyone from showing up and having a great time.

Egg hunters were divided into age groups of 0-2y, 3-5y, 6-8y, and 9-12y. After eagerly lining up at designated areas on the football field, the kids set off to find and collect as many Easter eggs as possible before time was up. As they raced, family and friends cheered them on from the sidelines with smiles and laughter.

When the race was finished, participants gathered to tally up their eggs. Those who collected the most eggs in each age group were given prizes that included coloring books, pails, and other toys. Of course, the eggs themselves also contained a variety of candy. The Easter Bunny made an appearance at the event, and the children were excited to talk to and get pictures with the bunny.

Morgan Wulf of the Newell Community Club said that they were impressed with the turnout. “We appreciate everyone coming out, especially in the cold weather,” she added.
