Brodie Smith, 8, of Fife Lake joins the more than 150 kids, from infants to age 12, who participated in last Sunday’s Springfield Township Park & Recreation Area’s annual Children’s Easter Egg Hunt. Organizers believe warm weather helped increase the turnout at this year’s event.

KALKASKA – For once, the Easter Bunny could put away his snow blower before his helpers spread thousands of plastic eggs, as well as a healthy amount of good cheer, around the grounds at the Springfield Township Park & Recreation Area for the sixth annual Children’s Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 9.

“We do this every year,” said Terri Sibole, one of the event’s organizers. “And, thank goodness we didn’t have snow.”

In past years, snow and cold weather have led to some challenges. However, the Easter Egg Hunt is always held “rain or shine.”

Sunday featured plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the high 60s to low 70s. That might have motivated a few extra local residents, and some visitors, to attend the annual event at the park, located near the intersection of Creighton and Lund roads.
