Kids will have two opportunities Saturday, April 3, to hunt for Easter Eggs in the Hamilton area this year.

The Ravalli County Pilots Association decided just recently to bring back their skydiving Easter Bunny to start their kids' Easter egg hunt on the west edge of the Ravalli County Airport in Hamilton. The 11 a.m. family event won't be at its previous location. It will be a bit north of that field, which is currently under construction. Instead, the eggs will be found at a field north of the Hamilton Trap Club and west of the red Choice Aviation building. Parking will be at Choice Aviation.

Ron Kullick said that there will be three sections of the field for different age groups - a section for those up to age 4, a section for those 5 to 8 years, and a third section for ages 9 to 11. There will be plenty of eggs, and one egg in each division with a special prize - An ice cream certificate for the young kids, a bicycle for the middle age group and an introductory airplane flight for the 9 to 11 age section.

He did ask that if you or your family are not feeling well or have cold-type symptoms, please don't attend. The skydiver will, of course, be dependent on the weather. But the hunt itself will happen, rain or shine.
But there's another event, too.

Also Saturday, April 3rd, one hour later, Hamilton's United Methodist-American Baptist Church will have an Easter egg hunt at its location, 211 North 6th Street. The 12 Noon event is for kids up through the fifth grade. There will also be activities for the kids besides the egg hunt. It's free, but You are asked to register, if at all possible, at the United Methodist-American Baptist Church webpage.

Again, if you or your family members are not feeling well, please don't attend these public events. And though these hunts are outside, wearing masks is still a very, very good idea.
