Grandchildren of Williams Community Church Men’s Fellowship met this week with Mark and Nancy Marshall to prepare for the annual Williams Community Easter Egg Hunt.

The project, now co-chaired by the Marshalls and is scheduled for April 7 at 10 am at Venice Park.

The hunt was originally hosted by the Williams Kiwanis Club for more than 50 years. About 10 years ago, when it looked like the tradition was coming to an end, Mark Marshall was approached and asked to step up and get the men’s group to continue the egg hunt.

“I just didn’t want to see this event come to an end,” he said.

Marshall who is a lifelong resident of Williams said that he remembers going to the egg hunt as a very small boy. “This is something very special for our community.”

For the past 10 years, the Marshall’s have co-chaired the egg hunt, and the church group has faithfully assisted. “Everyone steps up to assist with the final preparation,” said Nancy Marshall.

Over the years the group has colored and hidden more than 200 dozen hard-boiled eggs.

“We use a combination of candy-filled plastic eggs and hard-boiled eggs now,” said Mark Marshall. “We still hide more than 200 dozen eggs.”

The hunt will begin promptly at 10 am on April 7. Of course there will be prizes such as golden eggs, Easter baskets, and chocolate bunnies.

“Don’t forget that the Easter Bunny will be on hand to help hide the eggs and to hand out candy and prizes to the children,” said Marshall.

“We want the children to have a great time,” he said. Everyone is welcome.
