EASTER EGG HUNT -- Open to families with young children age 9 and under, this event occurs the second Saturday before Easter at Camp Jefferson. There are traditionally three separate groups consisting of age two and under, age three to five year olds, and six to eight year olds. Children get to visit with the Easter Bunny and parents are encouraged to bring their cameras.
Hippity, hop - The Easter Bunny is coming to Jefferson!
Time to think spring because the Easter Bunny has scheduled a visit to Jefferson Township to coincide with the Recreation Department’s 21st annual Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 28. Because the wrath of winter may still be upon us, the event will be held in the Jefferson Township Middle School gymnasium at 1000 Weldon Road at 1 pm. The Egg Hunt will take place after the GFWC Jr. Woman’s Club’s 34th annual Bunny Brunch being held at the Jefferson Township High School cafeteria that morning.
The Egg Hunt is open to all children up to 9 years of age who are Jefferson Township residents. Each child should bring his/her own basket to collect the eggs, and there will be a maximum of ten eggs allowed per basket. All children will receive a gift from the Easter Bunny, and there will be opportunities to take photographs with him, so parents should be sure to bring a camera.
Everyone is also encouraged to stop by the Recreation Department’s Scholastic Book Fair where you can shop for the best in children’s books and the Jefferson Township Middle School Student Council/Red Cross Clubs’ Bake Sale table in the school cafeteria. All proceeds will benefit the Operation Camp Jefferson 2015 Fund to help children in financial need attend the township’s summer day camp program.
The Recreation Department will be accepting donations for township residents in need of food through the township’s food pantry. Especially needed are non-perishable food items, paper products, household products, and/or toiletries.
There is no admission charge to participate in the Egg Hunt. For information/directions, call the Recreation Department at 973-663-8404 or visit www.jeffersontownship.net - Departments, Recreation or the Events section.
