HARRISON TOWNSHIP — It’s back!

The Harrison Township Fire Department’s popular Easter egg hunt is returning after a year’s hiatus. Local little ones will get the chance to fill their Easter baskets on the L’Anse Creuse High School football field on April 20.

Matt Czarnecki, president of Harrison Township Firefighters Local 1737, said it was with regret that the department was forced to cancel last year’s annual holiday event due to severe weather.

“We scrapped it at the 11th hour,” he said. “We didn’t want to be stuck with 9,000 eggs.”

They won’t be this year.

Czarnecki said close to 1,000 children attended the last free event in 2017, and the same number is anticipated this year. He said fire personnel will prepare about 9,000 eggs; some of course are pre-stuffed with goodies. He said the department is assisted by student volunteers from the high school to set up, make sure activities run smoothly, and aid in cleanup afterward.

“This isn’t just an egg hunt, it’s a whole morning of activities,” Czarnecki said.

Activities start at 10 a.m. and include photos with the Easter Bunny and Smokey the Fire Dog, a bounce house, a DJ, games and crafts. The egg hunt starts promptly at 11 a.m. for Harrison Township children 12 and younger.

L’Anse Creuse High School is located at 38495 L’Anse Creuse St.
