TOWNSEND -- Townsend VFW Post 6538 and its Ladies Auxiliary will hold an Easter Egg Hunt on the VFW grounds in West Townsend on Saturday, April 19.

Children 9 years of age or younger who live in Townsend or are relatives of Townsend VFW Post or auxiliary members are welcome to participate.

The children should gather in front of the VFW Function Hall prior to the 2 p.m. (sharp) starting time. The young people must bring their own bags, pails or baskets to hold their "finds."

It is rumored that the Easter Bunny might make an appearance at the Easter Egg Hunt.

This very active veterans group requests that you only bring children who live in Townsend to the Easter Egg Hunt unless you are affiliated with the Townsend VFW Post or one of its auxiliaries, that you are prompt and that you allow the children to locate the Easter eggs without adult coaching.
