LVGA Egg Hunt is a Fun Community Event

The Lincroft Village Green Association (LVGA) hosted their third annual Community Egg Hunt on Sunday, March 25.  Over 200 children arrived in pursuit of the 3,000 prize eggs that were set out on the grounds of the Lincroft Village Green on Newman Springs Road.  There were three separate hunts by age groups of two years old and under, three to six years old and seven and older.

There was much to do in addition to the egg hunt.  The community bonding venue featured other activities and fun stuff that kept participants on the grounds for two full hours.  Several games and amusing competitions were available including an egg and spoon race, bunny hop potato sack race and a ring toss game.

A professional face painter was on hand and most of the children opted for a “bunny” look.  Many followed up the face painting with a photo visit with the Easter Bunny to show off their new look.

A makeshift petting zoo was created by members of the Monmouth 4-H Club who brought pet rabbits of varied colors and sizes, including some interesting rare breeds.  Duck Donuts of Middletown was on site and encouraged everyone to sample their delicious wares.

Serving as co-chairs for the event were Kate Compton and Jaime Palumbo.  Mrs. Compton stated, “This was our third annual LVGA Egg Hunt!  It was a great success.  We are so pleased to watch the families of Lincroft enjoy the day and to see how the number of participants has grown over these last few years.  We hope that our community will continue to support the Lincroft Village Green Association so that we may continue to sponsor events like this for years to come!  Please visit www.lincroftvillagegreen.org to become a member.”

The co-chairs expressed thanks to the LVGA Board of Directors, Monmouth County 4H Club, Duck Donuts, Holmdel Texas Roadhouse, and the Middletown High School South student volunteers for all of their help.
