Children and grown-ups alike had several Easter Egg Hunts to choose from last Saturday in Liberty County.
The fourth annual Special Needs Easter Egg Hunt with the Hinesville Fire Department and District 3 Councilwoman Vicky Nelson was held at Full Gospel Tabernacle Church on 809 Veterans Parkway in Hinesville. Nelson told the Courier they had a good turnout this year, with special needs children and special needs adults from group homes coming out to enjoy the activities – an egg hunt, face painting, games, bounce houses and bubble blowing.
Nelson said the pastor from the Korean First Baptist Church in Hinesville, the Rev. Myung Hoon Lee, offered an invocation in Korean and English before the start of the event.
Organizations, including Right from the Start Medical Assistance Group (RSM), were on hand to give out information to the public.
The Big Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Hinesville Downtown Development Authority and the YMCA of Coastal Georgia-Liberty County Branch was held at Olvey Field. About 30,000 eggs were hidden for kids to find in three separate egg hunts held during the day. There were games and bounce houses, as well as a food court. Birdie the Early Bird from McDonald’s was on hand to pose for photos with children.
