The grounds of Mercy St. Francis Hospital will once again be “hopping” as Easter approaches. Mercy and the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the annual Easter egg hunt on the lawn of the hospital on Saturday, March 28.
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 Hospital administrator. “This year, we’ll have even more fun activities for the kids prior to the egg hunt.”
From 1 to 2 p.m., there will be free face art, $1 balloon animals and a Mercy Therapy Services information booth offering details about upcoming summer camps for kids ages 4 to 18. Parents can also stop by the pavilion of Mercy Medical Clinic between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. for free car seat checks.
The annual Easter egg hunt at Mercy St. Francis Hospital, located at 100 W. US Highway 60, begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 28, on the back lawn. For more information, call (417) 934-7000.
