New and returning hunters sprang into the Garden Fields at 11 o’clock last Saturday to capture their share of the thousands of hidden eggs – each stuffed with prizes or candy.
After the little hunters counted their egg scores, Glenholme students helped them claim their prizes and offered some hot cocoa and snacks.
The Glenholme Hare was once again the star of the event for youngsters. The Hare cheerfully posed for souvenir photos, offered high-fives, and even aided the little ones in making their way around the event.
Each year, this treasured community event involves countless hours of preparation by student-volunteers who participate in the Glenholme Community Service Program. Each student worked diligently to ensure every guest had an extraordinary egg-sperience.
The Spring Hunt is a long-standing tradition at The Glenholme School. Since 1995, the event is a delightful opportunity for residents of Washington and the surrounding towns to visit the school and meet some of the students and faculty, while taking part in a popular seasonal past-time.
The community service program at Glenholme offers students myriad opportunities to practice the core values of caring, respect, and responsibility, along with community service. All the while, students hone their social skills, develop an appreciation for other views, reinforce their self-esteem, and foster lifelong friendships.
