For more than 60 years, the annual Williams Easter Egg Hunt has been a staple of the community.
Once more, the event will be host on Saturday, April 4, 2015 at Venice Park in Williams.
Activities will c+ommence at 9:00 AM and the egg hunt will start promptly at 10:00 AM.
For many years, the hunt was sponsored by the Williams Kiwanis Club but when they could no longer host it the group asked Supervisor Mark Marshall for help.
Marshall approached the Christian Men’s Fellowship at the Williams Community Church, and the group agreed to sponsor the hunt.
“The hunt is open to all Williams citizens,” said Marshall, “It is always something that we look forward to sponsoring. It is an event our community is always excited about.”
The members of the Community Church will prepare more than 2000 eggs to be hidden for the children ages one-year-old to eight-year-old.
Special eggs will be hidden that are prize eggs which are traded in for chocolate Easter Bunnies and beautiful Easter baskets which promise to bring a smile to any child’s face.
“This is a wonderful family event that celebrates the true reason for Easter,” said Marshall.
Marshall also added that he would also like to remind everyone that there will be an Easter Sunrise service at the cross west of Williams on King road at Leesville road starting at 6:00 AM am Easter morning.
Many of the local Christian Churches gather for this annual service to celebrate their Christian faith and watch the sun rise over the Sutter Buttes.
Easter Services are also scheduled to be held at the Williams Community Church at 9th and C streets in Williams and will start at 10:30 AM, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
