Each year hundreds of excited kids “hunt” for eggs at the Loyal Heights Community Center (2101 NW 77th St) and the Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Ave NW). Organizers are looking for volunteers to make this year’s event successful. “We need help hiding eggs, assistance during the ‘hunt’ and with light clean-up after the event,” Amy Janas writes us.
“We need extra volunteers for this event,” says Janas. “The Ballard Community Center has faced extreme cut-backs this year: the hours and staff have been drastically reduced. The Ballard Advisory Committee (a group of community volunteers who oversee events and operations at the Ballard Community Center) wants to see events like these continue — so we are calling on support of the community.”
Total time from set-up to clean-up is approximately two hours, from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 23, although people can volunteer for just part of the morning. The hunts themselves will be at 10 a.m. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Gwen Wessels at the Ballard Community Center, (206) 684-4093. If you’re interested in volunteering at Loyal Heights, call the center at (206) 684-4052.
