The Easter Bunny will make a stop in Minden this Sunday to get children in the mood for spring.
Children from birth to nine years old are invited to participate in the annual Easter Egg Hunt from 2 until 3:30 p.m. at the Farm, located on the corner of East Union and Talton Streets, across from Save-A-Lot.
The hunt is sponsored each year by the Young Women's Service Club of Minden.
"We are a community service organization and want to offer children in Minden as many fun events as possible," said Stephanie Pitman, who co-chairs the egg hunt with Crystal Heard. "This is such a fun event for the children in our community. We look forward to it every year."
Cost to participate in the hunt is $1, which helps the club defray the cost of supplies.
"We also receive donations from local businesses," Pitman said. "Barksdale Federal Credit Union has supported our efforts with a generous donation for the past several years."
Many activities will be available for children in addition to the hunt including crafts, face painting, raffles, bouncers and other prizes.
The Young Women's Service Club was organized in 1942, with a purpose to aid others and provide general community service.
In addition to the egg hunt, other projects and events sponsored by the YWSC are a Yearly Scholarship awarded to a Webster Parish High School Senior in honor of former Miss Minden, Hannah McFarland; the Meadowview Nursing Home Christmas Party; the Town and Country Nursing Home Christmas Party, assisting Civitans with Toys for Tots, the Miss Minden Pageant, Kid's Day at the Annual Minden St. Jude's Auction and other activities and contributions.
