The Easter Bunny hands out treats at the Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Banksville Community House in Greenwich.

Dozens of families came out with their children to see the Easter Bunny arrive by fire truck for the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Banksville Community House in Greenwich on Saturday.

“We put over 1,400 eggs so each child can fill a basket,” said Kristin Galvin, BCH Committee Member and volunteer.  “The fenced in playground area is perfect for toddlers and pre-school aged children. We make it a bit more challenging for the older kids. Their eggs are spread all over the ball field so it becomes more of a race to get the most eggs.”

The children readily empty their eggs after the hunt to recycle them for next year’s event.

The egg hunt is free to children 12 and under. Proceeds from a bake sale and raffle support the Banksville Community House and its programs.

The Banksville Community House is a non-profit organization. For more information visit www.thebch.org.
