Maxwell Hosts egg-travaganza!

Pancakes, sausage and of course eggs, were found last Saturday at the Maxwell Elementary, as the Maxwell Parks and Recreation Auxiliary Committee hosted their annual Pancake Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. The morning started off with a fresh breakfast served in adult or child portions. Adult servings were offered at $10 and included three pancakes, three sausages, eggs and choice of coffee or juice. Kids plates were offered at $5 and included one pancake, one sausage, eggs and choice of drink. 

“This is our third year holding the event,” said committee member Leighann Morris. “We had around 15 people attend the breakfast, which is down from last year.” 

After the breakfast, around 50 kids, from all ages, lined up for their chance to locate the 2,000 candy filled eggs and several golden eggs for a special prize package. 

“We have attended every year and the boys always love it.” said Maxwell resident Bridget Azevedo. 

At the event Saturday, kids were placed in groups by age, and each patiently awaited their opportunity to plunge into the egg-filled grassy acreage behind the Maxwell Elementary. 

“We let the little ones under age four have a go at the egg hunt first. Then we have designated sections for each of the age groups to fill their baskets and take a shot at finding the golden eggs,” said Randy Wilkins, president of Maxwell Parks and Recreation District. 

Within an hour, all 2,000 eggs were accounted for. 

“Watching the kids run around with smiles on their faces is the best part,” said Dale Johnson, a member of the district’s board. ■
