Prizes won by kids courtesy of area merchants
Approximately 125 children, ages 8 and under, participated in the 12th Annual Easter Egg Hunt held by the Knights of Columbus on April 4 at McConville Park in Cold Spring. The children collected over 2,000 candy-filled eggs. There were 75 prizes of stuffed bunnies, chocolate candy bunnies, dollar bills, gift certificates for ice cream cones and popsicles given out to the children in all age categories who found the special egg of the day.
Along with the Knights, the Village Scoop, Cup-o-ccino Café, Go-Go Pops, Garden Café, Cold Spring Pizza and Carnival Ice Cream in Fishkill donated prizes that helped to make this event even more special.
Dan Dillon, co-chairman with Bob Flaherty, would like to thank not only the merchants but also Tricia Kelly, who played the part of the Easter Bunny; the Our Lady of Loretto Parish teen group, God Squad, who filled the eggs with candy; and DJs Cameron and Katie Clarke, who treated those attending to Easter Bunny music.
The top prize of a $25 gift certificate from Cold Spring Pizza for the winner of the jellybean jar contest was won by Hanna Scali, while Anthony Mastrorilli and Maura Tomann took the second- and third-place prizes ($15 and $10) from the Garden Café. The Knights also provided, at no cost, hot dogs, coffee and hot chocolate.
