Another fun KVMC/KAUM Easter Egg Hunt!!

The cool weather didn't keep any of the kids away Saturday morning at the Annual KVMC/KAUM Easter Egg Hunt!! It was total mayhem and madness when Mayor Jim Baum yelled "Go"!! The kids are always divided into age groups, so everyone came away with lots of candy eggs and plastic eggs, which were redeemable for prizes! One lucky little lady, Anjelica Pena, found the special egg that was good for a $100.00 Gift Card, generously donated by Fuller Foods!! After the prizes were given out, Juan Molina and Shirley Denson lined up the kids to play a numbers game, and the winner of the game was Bryson Clark, who won himself a very cute Easter Bunny, kindly donated by Juan Molina. Juan also had several bunnies for sale at the Hunt. A big thanks to all of our sponsors who make this Annual event possible, and to Alco, Fuller Foods, Juan Molina and Shirley Denson for their help year after year, we couldn't do it without you!!
