WEST GROVE >> The West Grove United Methodist Church marked the spring season with an family event called “Eggstravaganza” on Sunday afternoon.

Scores of members and other community residents came to celebrate with Easter season without the stress and chaos that sometimes comes with other egg hunts.

United Methodist hosts a number of activities and public service events throughout the year including free lunches, barbecues, a Christmas live nativity and lectures. During the Halloween season, they host a “Trunk or Treat” event that allows children to seek Halloween treats in a safe environment of cars circled in the parking lot with adults giving out candy and other items.

This “Eggstravaganza” was held inside and out, with games and a bouncing house under roof and eggs scattered all over the back yard. Each child was limited to 12 eggs and there was no pushing and shoving, as the eggs contained little toys, candies and messages and were available throughout the afternoon so all the children were able to fill their baskets.


Kids from as young as 1 and as old as pre-teen participated in this friendly and gentle event.
