100 participate in Easter egg hunt at Circle Rocking S Children’s Farm

FREE SOIL — The Circle Rocking S Children’s Farm’s annual special needs Easter egg hunt and bonnet contest on March 22 drew 100 participants from Manistee, Frankfort, Ludington, Walhalla and other locations.

“Over 2,000 eggs were hidden for the participants in the side the big barn,” according to a news release.

The farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides touch therapy and recreation free of charge to people with special needs of all ages. The farm relies on donations for their programs.

A section of the barn was for those more flexible, while another section was for people in wheelchairs and walkers.

Live bunnies, chickens, ducks and sheep were in the barn for everyone to pet and enjoy while looking for eggs.

All participants also received a free stuffed animal.

All candy and stuffed animals were donated.

The eggs were stuffed by volunteers from Bethany Lutheran Church in Ludington, while Illinois residents Janice Rafferty and Sally Franz donated the stuffed animals.
