Whether you’re shopping for gifts or hunting for eggs, Mercy St. Francis Hospital is the place to be for Easter fun.
The Mercy St. Francis Hospital Auxiliary will host its annual Easter Bazaar on Thursday, Mar. 15, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the front lobby of the hospital, located at 100 W. US Highway 60. The event will feature a variety of gifts for Easter and Mother’s Day, including homemade treats and handmade items, as well as gift shop merchandise. All proceeds from the annual event will support projects of the auxiliary that improve patient care.
The following weekend – on Saturday, Mar. 24, at 2 p.m. – 4,000 Easter eggs will be hidden on the back lawn of the hospital. Mercy and the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce will once again sponsor the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Kids will search in their own age groups: 1 to 3, 4 to 6, 7 to 9 and 10 to 12. One lucky hunter from each group who finds the golden egg will win a prize. The fun begins with activities for the kids at 1:30 p.m., with the egg hunt set for 2 p.m.
“This event has become a family tradition for us and many in the community,” said Cindy Weatherford, Mercy St. Francis Hospital administrator. “It’s so fun to look at back at pictures of previous years and see how the kids have grown.”
