As part of their 25th Anniversary celebration, the Alternative Community Resource Program (ACRP) will host a Spring Egg Hunt for all community children at the newly renovated ACRP/ Columba Play Center (corner of Chestnut Street and 10th Avenue) on Wednesday, April 16th from 4:00-7:00 PM. Along with the Spring Egg Hunt, a variety of indoor activities have been planned for children and families. The evening will begin with grilled hot hogs, popcorn, and beverages. Children of all ages will be able to participate in an egg hunt at the Play Center’s outdoor playground and will enjoy a special visit from the bunny. Following the egg hunt, children will be invited to stop at the “ice cream shop” for a special frosty treat with their favorite toppings. Children and families may also take part in the spring photo booth and have their pictures taken with the bunny to commemorate the evening. The evening will conclude with a reflection at the memory board. Children and families are able to add a special tribute to ACRP to help commemorate the 25 years and years to come of ACRP providing an array of unique programs and diverse services in helping children, youth, and families.
