In a little over a week, kids from across the area will make their way to the high school for the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg Hunt.

The popular annual event is scheduled for March 31 at 10 a.m. at the Whitehall High School Football Field. The age divisions in 2018 are two and up, three to five, six to eight and nine to 12-year olds.

According to event organizer Jill Dove, all the prizes have been purchased and the Whitehall Garden Club has been busy filling eggs.

Dove praised the garden club and others who help year in and year out at the popular event.

"The Chamber could not make this such a great Easter Egg Hunt without the help year after year from the Garden Club. It is a huge undertaking to remove the old tape, fill the eggs, and re-tape them. It is hours and hours of work," she said. "The volunteers that help the day of are also very important. Those volunteers do announcing, help map out the different age groups, put out eggs and hand out prizes after. We even have a showing of the Easter Bunny. Without all these helping hands it would be impossible to put on this event."

Dove feels the event is rewarding for everyone involved.

"We see so many of our business and families making donation so that the Chamber can put on Easter Egg Hunt. For me, the Easter Egg Hunt is my favorite activity the Chamber puts on. There are hundreds of kids running around with smiles on their faces and it brings everyone together," she said.

There will also be concessions at this year's event with the Whitehall High School senior class providing items like hot chocolate and coffee.
