Marysville Easter Egg Hunt Success | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

I would like to thank all of the residents and visitors that attended the Marysville Easter Egg Hunt event held March 30 for their incredible benevolence and community spirit.

The annual Easter Egg Hunt in Marysville is sponsored by the Marysville Noon Rotary Club. Additional support has been provided by Steve Fulton of State Farm Insurance to our event which attracted well over 2,000 visitors to Jennings Memorial Park in celebration of a great tradition. Over 11,000 eggs and treats were distributed and Grandview Village residents donated 30 gift baskets to the free event.

As with all Marysville Parks and Recreation events, we encourage participants to bring a canned food item or contribution for the Marysville Food Bank. This year over 900 pounds of food was collected, accompanied by cash donations.

Special thanks to the Marysville Key Club students from Marysville Getchell High School, United Way Dolly Parton Imagination Library, Ivars, Hillside Church, Marysville Kiwanis Club, Marysville Volunteer Patrol and Piink Iink Face Painting for making this year’s Easter event so special.

Jim Ballew

Director of Parks and Recreation

City of Marysville
