Kolsen Kalhandt is all smiles hunting Easter Eggs inside at the Exeter Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg Hunt.
The annual Exeter Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg Hunt was held on Sunday, March 25th inside the Exeter-Milligan gym due to the rain. The event is orchestrated by the Exeter-Milligan Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).
The group starts several weeks before the event and fills over 1000 eggs to prepare for the afternoon hunt. FCCLA not only donates their time but also provides quite a bit of the fillings and each year adds more eggs to replace broken and lost eggs.
This year they added a large egg for each child to find that held a small stuff animal.
The FCCLA students run the egg hunt hiding all the eggs and then monitoring the kids as they hunt. The Easter bunny also makes an appearance for photos and also hands out extra treats.
This year close to 50 children hunted eggs in the four different age groups.
