Social Distancing Easter Egg Hunt!


We invite you to participate in the 1st (and we hope only) Annual
Social Distancing Easter Egg Hunt

Print our a few Easter Egg patterns that you can easily find on the internet (here is a LINK if you wish) . You or your children are encouraged to colour as many eggs as you wish and then hide them in your window or even your yard – get creative! Make sure they are there by Saturday night!

This Sunday, April 12, we invite you to take a walk (with appropriate social distancing!) through the community, take a few pictures and a tally of all the eggs you find! Once you’re finished your hunt, email your favourite picture and your number of eggs to volunteer@discoveryridge.com

The top two households with the largest number of found eggs will win a
$25 gift certificate to either Javino or Maharajah.
All entries must be in by 5:00PM on April 12. 
(This contest will be on the honour system!)

HAVE FUN and STAY SAFE!
