Have you looked at the calendar? Easter is just days away, and that means it’s time for the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Lincoln Community Center, 110 Ash Street in Troy. The fun begins at 12 noon on Saturday, April 15, 2017, when the first group of children will race across the two-acre field right behind the center. Troy Rotary Club helps sponsor the event and will have volunteers there to help children ages 2-12 find lots of candy and surprises.
Families planning to participate are asked to be at the center by 11:45 AM. New this year will be three different age groups for searching for the eggs: youth ages 2-5 will go first; next will be ages 6-9; and the final group will be of the big kids, ages 10-12. Prizes will be awarded in each age group, and the Easter Bunny will be on hand to greet all the families. Every child may gather up eggs in a basket or bag they bring to the event.
The event is open to area families and is free-of-charge. If the weather is inclement, the hunt will be moved inside the center. If you need more information on the event, contact the Lincoln Community Center on (937) 335-2715 or visit their Web site at www.lcctroy.com.
Troy Rotarians and the Troy Rotary Foundation support several community projects annually. During the 2015-16 Rotary year, over $23,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including support for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program, Rotary’s annual Shoe Project, academic and community service scholarships, and sponsorships to summer camps at Brukner Nature Center and WACO Air Museum. The Troy Rotary Club is a member-involved, goal-oriented service club focused on socio/economic issues that have an impact both locally and internationally.
