Easter Egg Hunt

On the Saturday before Easter, the members of the Post hold an Easter Egg Hunt. This event takes place on the grounds of the Post. Children from the area from ages from 3 to 11, carrying their baskets, pails or bags, scour the grassy field along side the Post gathering the brightly colored eggs containing sweet treats.  This event may be considered the fastest event of the year!  It does not take long for the children to find all the eggs... if you have young children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces -- bring them out and watch their smiles as they bring in their "loot".. 



Childrens Christmas Party

 The Annual Christmas Party for the children is a fun event for all ages although it is targeted for younger folk. Holiday music, food, gifts and a visit from good ol' Saint Nick. As Santa sits by the decorated brightly lit tree, the children reveal their list of wanted presents... what a great time for a photo opportunity...
