Turnout was outstanding with great weather and lots of families with children. Thousands of eggs were hunted and found by the youngsters. To see some of the activities in progress and the children posing with Easter Bunny click on this link: Easter Hunt Pictures.
This was the 4th year Immanuel hosted the event. Each year it has grown with more families and more activities for the children.
Warm thanks to all our vistors for coming to join us. Thanks also to all the dedicated Immanuel volunteers who prepared for months to make this event fun for everyone.
