Social Distancing Egg Hunt!

Join us for our Social Distancing Egg Hunt! Families are invited to paint rocks that look like decorated Easter eggs, have spring themes or a special positive messages and place them out in plain view in your neighborhood, in public spaces, or parks. During the week of April 6-12, families should take walks and see how many eggs they can find. It is important to remember not to pick up or collect any of the “eggs”, as doing so would rob others of finding them and it is safer to avoid contact. Photos of families finding eggs can be posted on the Township Facebook page, look for the event Social Distancing Egg Hunt – https://www.facebook.com/events/237720740711932
