For more than 25 years, Mercy St. Francis Hospital has been “hopping” around Easter time, and this year is no different.
Mercy is once again joining forces with the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce to sponsor the annual Easter egg hunt on the lawn of the hospital, located at 100 W. US Highway 60.
The Easter Bunny will be there along with 3,000 hidden eggs. Kids will search with their own age groups: ages 1-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. One lucky hunter in each group who finds the golden egg will win a prize!
“This is always a great opportunity for families in the community to come together and celebrate the holiday,” said Robert Rogers, Mercy St. Francis interim president. “Even police, fire and EMS plan to be there to let the kids check out their emergency equipment.”
The annual Easter egg hunt at Mercy St. Francis Hospital begins at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 5, on the back lawn. For more information, call (417) 934-7000.
