Egg hunts rescheduled for Saturday

by W. Winston Skinner

A rural Coweta County church and a Peachtree City civic club are both holding Easter egg hunts on Saturday.

Rainy weather last Friday and Saturday caused some Easter events – egg hunts and sunrise services – to be moved indoors. A few events, including the egg hunts sponsored by Providence Baptist Church and by the Optimist Club of Peachtree City and the Peachtree City Fire Department, were rescheduled for this weekend.

The egg hunt at Providence – which is located in Providence Church Road in the Welcome community west of Newnan – will start at 2 p.m.

The Peachtree City egg hunt will have registration at 9:30 a.m. – with the hunt scheduled for 10:30 a.m. “The Easter egg hunt will be held at Shakerag Park on McIntosh Trail/Kelly Drive near the amphitheater,” according to Nancy Britton.

“Our annual Easter egg hunt had to be canceled Saturday due to the rainy weather, but it has been rescheduled for this Saturday,” Britton said. “Come visit with the Easter Bunny. Enjoy games such as the moonwalk, face painting and the fishing game.”

The fire department will be sponsoring “some fun safety activities” along with their Education Bus and fire trucks, Britton said.

The PTC hunt is free and is for children ages 2-11. Children may bring an Easter basket or decorate an Easter bag at the Optimist event. Pets are not permitted.
