The Grove City Wide Easter Egg Hunt will be held Sunday, March 23rd at the Grove Sports Complex at 2:00 p.m..

 “We give the best Easter egg hunt in the four-state area,” said organizer Charlotte Stogsdill. “It’s kind of like Christmas at Easter.”

Stogsdill, along with her husband Windy, Connie and Leon Arnall, and Justin and Stephanie Wadley, have been organizing the event for the city for the past five or six years.

Funding from many area businesses makes it possible.

As Easter draws near, the six organizers, along with helpers from the community, including the Grove Fire Department and members of the Posse and Group 33 motorcycle clubs, hop into action. Wednesday night everyone met at the Moose Lodge to stuff over 5,000 eggs with Easter candy.

In addition, toys for all ages will be given out.

Stogsdill said the toys are mostly clearance items that have been purchased from Atwood’s and Wal-Mart with donations from local businesses.
