RYE, N.Y. - The Osborn Retirement Community in Rye will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt starting 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 7 on the property's south lawn. The event, which is in its eighth year, is free and open to the public.
"It's really a great event," Event Coordinator Jane Fox said. "The children come out to the south lawn, which is covered with brightly colored Easter eggs. They run out and within five minutes, 3,000 eggs are off the lawn and in baskets."
Fox said that event usually features about 150 to 200 participants and is a favorite of the residents and the community at large.
"Its a big hit with the kids and the grandparents but it's open to the community, staff and residents," Fox said. "We invite all the nursery schools and invite all the folks around to come. One of the things that is wonderful is how people get such joy from the children. They are so darling and very uplifting for our residents. It really warms their hearts."
This year, the event will feature members of the Rye Lions Club selling chocolate Easter bunnies for the first time. Participants, who are required to bring a basket for collecting eggs, will also be able to stay and have a picnic lunch on the south lawn for $3.
