CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County 4-H Teen Council held its regular business meeting March 7 at Buck’s Pizza of Clearfield.
The main agenda item was finalizing plans for the upcoming eighth annual In-door Easter Egg-Stravaganza.
It will take place March 17 at the Expo II Building at the Clearfield County Fairgrounds. Doors will open at 11 a.m. and the event will conclude by 3 p.m.
Although the event is now in its eighth year, this will be the first time the council is hosting the event.
Members are also excited to be working in a joint effort with Clearfield County Fair Queens for a Cause.
All proceeds will benefit both the Clearfield County 4-H Program and the Children’s Miracle Network.
The goal of this event is to provide a fun, family-friendly opportunity for the community while supporting great causes. Activities will include:
- Egg hunts for children who are 12 years and under. These will begin at 1 p.m. and run in three age divisions. To participate, registration is needed by 12:30 p.m. A $1 donation per child secures entrance to the egg hunt and also enters each child into a drawing for prizes, including bicycles. All egg hunt participants will receive goodie bags and a few lucky participants will receive additional prizes.
- A coloring contest for youth ages 3 to 12 years, which is being sponsored by Neeper’s Sweet Treats. Coloring pages and a complete list of rules are available at Neeper’s or on the Facebook event page. All entries must be received between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on the day of the event, and prizes will be given to the winners of each of the three age divisions (3-6, 7-9 and 10-12 years of age).
- Nine local, youth-oriented or non-profit vendors will be on-hand and each will provide a giveaway open to all youth participants.
- Kid-friendly games, face painting and crafts will be available for 25 cents each or for $5 for unlimited play. There will also be a dime toss, which is open to adults.
- Photos with the Easter Bunny.
- Food booth with hot dogs, chips, drinks and baked goods.
The council thanks the local businesses, organizations and community members for their outpouring of support through both monetary and in-kind donations, as well as promotion of the program.
