Families enjoy sweets, treats during holiday event

Families streamed through the new Chippewa Township Community Building, giving youngsters a chance to meet the Easter Bunny and get a few plastic eggs without playing in the the snow on Saturday. Throughout Saturday morning and afternoon, children of all ages celebrated Easter with a variety of egg hunts in Mecosta and Osceola counties, similar to the one in Chippewa Lake, hosted by the Chippewa Lake-Mecosta Lions Club. The event was one of two Easter hunts planned by the club, and was originally scheduled to take place at Millett Park, but was moved indoors due to the inclement weather.

As families entered the community building, children were encouraged to pick out a stuffed animal to bring home; were given a goodie bag filled with candy, plastic eggs and more; and could get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny.
