Among the eggs, there were hundreds of eggs that contained tickets that can be turned in for a prize. Some of the prizes included Nerf footballs, hula hoops, frisbees, jump ropes, stuffed animals, plastic swords and so many more.

There were eight grand prize tickets. The grand prizes were bikes or trikes according to the age group.

The Easter egg hunt was broken down into four groups; up to 4 year olds, 5 to 6 year olds, 7 to 9 year olds and the 10 to 12 year old group.

Once the hunt was over, everyone began opening the plastic eggs to see what they had gotten. Some eggs contained prize tickets, others candy of different types.

No event of this size can be pulled off without a lot of help. The Montgomery Central High School Cheerleaders, Palmyra Volunteer Fire Department, Girl Scout Troop 560 as well as Hilltop Super Market employees and family all volunteered to help.
