There were more than 100 children taking part in the fun, and more than 1,000 eggs hidden on the grounds.
“The residents decorated the eggs and had a ball doing it. Today is always a fun day for everyone,” Chief Long Term Care Officer Elise Stafford said.
Edwin R. Thompson, worshipful master of the association, said, “We love doing this annually for the nursing home and the community. The citizens of Coastal Manor enjoy it, and love the fellowship, especially with the kids.

Safe Hollow founder Debbi Callicutt said, “I’m so thankful to all the people who donated items to our yard sale, and also for all the volunteers who are working today.
“I also want to thank all the people who are out here today buying things, and want them to know that every penny raised will go to taking care of the animals.”
