"Hoppy" times with the Optimist Club

Over the weekend, one of the most popular activities for many Optimist Clubs took place in communities throughout North America. In Idaho, the Jerome, Meridian, Middleton Area, and Twin Falls Optimist Clubs all headed out to their parks to host the Easter Bunny and his friends at the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

All clubs partnered with others to make sure this "hoppy" event took place in their community. The Meridian Optimist Club solicited donations from area businesses to help defray the costs of their hunt and then members got together to stuff eggs and then host the event. In Middleton and Twin Falls, the Optimist Clubs partnered with their local Parks and Recreation districts to make the event a great success; and in Jerome, the Jerome Optimist Club teamed up with the Kiwanis Club.

Twin Falls Optimist Club member Dennis Bowyer summed up the day when he told the newspaper, "If you’re a minute late, you missed it."

In case you missed it, here are a few pictures of the fun. Thanks to Traci Hine Brandebourg for sharing them with us. Photos ©Traci Hine Brandebourg.
