Children of all ages gathered on Easter Monday in Dobbins Heights for their annual Easter egg hunt with adult leaders of the town and surrounding communities.
On-hand were members of the Ladies and Men Auxiliary of Dobbins Heights, who began planing the event in February. People from Richmond County and out-of-state helped to support the hunt.
Prizes given included a large Easter basket, five bicycles and three golden eggs.
During the month of August, the Auxiliary sponsors a back-to-school activity where school supplies and uniforms will be given to school-age children.
The Easter celebration started at New Bethel A.M.E. Zion Church, where Rev. Bula Legrand got the activites started. Rebecca Boyd talked to the children about the importance of getting in a Bible School program at the close of the school year.
The children were escorted to the park by the Richmond County Highway Patrol to search for eggs, and enjoy music performed by Vincent Nelson.
Everyone was treated to hamburgers, hot dogs, potato chips, drinks and water, with meats prepared by Waddell Dockery.
A number of volunteers assisted with the hiding of the eggs.
