From Joell Beether, Laura Bolyard, Jennifer Barrett and Toni Hochstein, Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce:
Kids of all ages enjoyed the 10th Annual Huron Valley Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31 at Duck Lake Pines Park in Highland. Children filled the park, in spite of the windy weather, and enjoyed face painting, a visit with the Easter Bunny and the elusive quest for the most Easter eggs in their basket.
Thanks to Mary McDonell and the Charter Township of Highland for partnering again with the Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce and making this a terrific collaboration between the two community organizations in bringing a family-friendly event to the Huron Valley area. Presenting sponsors, Genisys Credit Union and Hines Park Ford, helped ensure a great time was had by all and we certainly appreciate their support of this great community event. Our thanks to White Lake Branch Manager, Linda Hanneman, and her credit union team for their help with the event. Steve Erdman and Janet Kramb of Hines Park Ford were also on site to lend a helping hand. Our special thanks goes out to John Parks of Garden Path Landscaping for creating a picturesque place for kids to visit with the rabbit and for parents to take some great looking photos. It was a bit windy and the tent provided by Peter’s True Value and the help of Peter Grebeck made it much more comfortable for everyone.
The event continues to grow thanks to the generous support of the following businesses: Advance Concrete Products Co., The Bradley Company & Jo Ann Brandon, Buffalo Wild Wings, Colasanti’s, Discover Preschool, Friends Preschool — Kindergarten, Garden Path Landscaping, Genisys Credit Union, Great Lakes Renovations, Highland Station Orthodontics and Dr. Stephen Hershey, Hines Park Ford, Hi-Tech Heating & Cooling, The Kemp Law Firm, Kids in Motion Pediatric Therapy Service, LaFontaine Automotive, Milford Farmers’ Market, Milford Township Clerk Holly Brandt, Oak Pointe Church — Milford, Peter’s True Value, Pomodoro Fresh Italian, Renewal by Andersen, Rodnick Chiropractic Life Center, Suburban Dental Care and Veterinary Care Specialists.
And of course, the volunteers who make it all happen! We thank you for joining us on this blustery day to make sure the kids had a great time. Our sincere thanks to: Pat and Doyle Carter, Rachel Barrett, Hannah McKolay, Gayle Olsen, Don Green, Bob Husic, Anna Husic, Judy Cooper, Pam Terry, Pegi Eddy, Heather Marquis, Hunter Barnes, Peter Barnes, Garrett Steele, and the helpers from Huron Valley Youth Baseball/Softball League — Ed Langkford, Steve Doyle, Colin Doyle, and Jen Doyle.
