WBNA Easter Egg Hunt March 23

Snow? What snow?!!? We've got an Easter Egg Hunt on the calendar, West Bucktown!

All neighborhood kids age 10 and under are invited to join us on Saturday, March 23 at 11:00 am for the annual egg hunt at Maplewood Park. This  BYOB event (bring your own basket!) will be held rain, shine...or snow! This is always one of our best-attended gatherings and a great way to meet and mingle with other families from the 'hood.

We need everyone's help to make this year's egg hunt our best ever! Please consider donating a bag or two of individually wrapped candies (Starbursts, Hershey's Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, etc.) or small dollar-store prizes such as jump ropes, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, frisbees, coloring books and art projects. We could also use a few extra hands on deck at the hunt to assist with crowd control and prize distribution. If you can help in any way, please email us at

Stuff It!

In preparation for the annual WBNA Easter Egg Hunt, we're looking for volunteers to help us fill about 1,000 plastic eggs with candy and prize tickets at a neighbor's home.

( didn't think all those eggs stuffed themselves now, did you?)

If you can spare an hour or two on Wednesday, March 20, beginning at 6:00 pm, please email us at and we'll let you know the address. Come for as little or as long as you like! In exchange for your generous slave labor, we'll provide the pizza, wine, beer, and Real Housewives reruns. Children are welcome to help!
