Volunteers, donation needed for CK Easter event

-A A +A

The Faraway Inn in Cedar Key is organizing its Third Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt.

Last year's event drew about 70 kids – ages one to 13 years – to participate in the egg-citment.

The inn's owners, Doreen and Oliver Bauer, have already purchased over 600 eggs, egg filler toys, prizes and three large, 3-foot Pinatas.

Faraway Inn is asking for donations of your time or financial help to hire and purchase the following:

• Two face-painters (due to last year’s high demand).

• Children’s entertainment.

• Individually wrapped, hard and soft candies, like bubble gum, Laffy Taffy, Starbursts, Skittles, Sweet Tarts, Tootsie Rolls, Gummies, Nerds, etc.  Please, no chocolate and no lollipops.

• Volunteers needed to help keep order and organization of  three age groups of children and the ongoing activities.

The celebration will be Saturday, April 19 from noon to 2:30 p.m. at Faraway Inn at the corner of Third and G Streets. 

Call Doreen at 543-8083 to volunteer. Candy, check or cash donations can be made at the Faraway Inn or the Chamber of Commerce Welcome Center downtown.
