Four hundred and fifty plastic eggs, packed with candies and trinkets by volunteer librarian Glenda Nitschke and her sisters Theresa and Nancy Provost, were spread across the backyard of the Quyon Library in anticipation of the annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday afternoon.
At 1 p.m., 45 children between the ages of 1 and 9, with their parents in tow, poured onto the lawn in search of eggs bearing numbers that matched the number assigned to each child.
Nitschke, a retired Public Works employee, said four chocolate bunnies had also been hidden on the premises as part of the hunt, and that there would be a raffle for a candyfloss machine donated by Debbie Kingsbury to raise funds for future library activities.
Asked what drives her to do this, Nitschke said, “I love kids and I had some of my own. I love doing things for the municipality and for the kids.”
