"Eggstravaganza" @ North Mabee Boys & Girls Club

Thousands of Easter eggs were found hidden around the North Mabee Boys & Girls Club last Wednesday for a fun-filled Easter egg hunt held for North Mabee, West Mabee and Mabee Red Shield members. Almost a hundred kids aged one to 12 found the eggs on the football field, the baseball field and the playground, according to Latrice Fowlkes, North Mabee Asst. Director/Program Administrator.
“Everyone had a great time. It only lasted about an hour, so there was a lot of running around. We gave prizes for golden eggs that were found,” Latrice said. 
The youngest children were allowed to attend if their siblings were members of a Boys & Girls Club. Children participating either brought their own Easter baskets or bags and some were given out by the clubs. Boys & Girls Club Leadership Council member and long-time volunteer Liz Hunt hosted the hunt on behalf of her State Senate volunteers, furnishing 2,000 eggs and 10 prizes for the kids. The eggs were colorful plastic eggs filled with candy. Photo: Mabee Red Shield Club member Xochitl Biles found one of the prize-winning golden eggs.
