At the 9th Annual Easter Egg Hunt held at the North Street Park, the OCGCA hosted over 200 children plus parents and grandparents for this community family event. Divided by age groups and led by the Easter Bunny, children collected over 2400 eggs filled with candy. The Easter Bunny posed for family photos, gave out lots of hugs and brought smiles to the faces of the egg hunters.
New to the event this year and as a reflection of the OCGCA’s commitment to instilling a sense of community and volunteerism in our youth, ten Ocean City student volunteers donated their time and energy to decorate the park and assist in running the event including performing as the Easter Bunny. The Association plans to continue working with local students to provide volunteer opportunities at future events.
We plan to continue hosting this well received community event next year on the Saturday before Easter and urge everyone to come out and enjoy the fun.
