Third-annual Easter Egg Hunt set for April 13 at Franklin Woods Community Hospital

4/2/2014


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – There’ll be more than 3,000 Easter eggs waiting to be found at the third annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Franklin Woods Community Hospital and The Wellness Center on Sunday, April 13.

The event will be held at 2:30 p.m. on the grounds between the two facilities, otherwise known as “the boulders.”

The event is free and is open to the public as well as MSHA team members, providing a great Easter family activity. This is one of the largest Easter egg hunts in the area, drawing more than 300 kids last year.

When the starting signal is sounded, the kids will swarm the area in search of the plastic eggs. There will be three egg hunt areas, each for a different age group: 0-3, 4-5 and 6-10. Parents may accompany their kids.

All egg hunters will receive a prize when they turn in their eggs. Golden Egg finders will win a special prize. Scrubs the Bear, the mascot for Niswonger Children’s Hospital, will make a special appearance, as will several other mascots (be on the lookout for the Easter Bunny!). There will also be live bunnies, chicks and ducks.

The event will happen rain or shine. For more information on the egg hunt, call the Egg Hunt Hotline at 423-302-1120.
