Easter weekend means church services and egg hunts, and there'll be plenty of both. Many churches will hold special sunrise services on Sunday in addition to (or instead of) their regular worship services. See our RELIGION section for more information on some of those.
Egg Hunts will be held by many churches, some businesses, and other organizations. The 72nd annual Lincolnton Easter Egg Hunt will be held at 10 AM Saturday at Betty Ross Park on S. Madison St. The event will include egg hunts for children ages 9 & under, games, and prizes. This egg hunt is completely FREE; bring your own basket, no Easter grass please! The egg hunts will be age specific (ages 0-2, ages 3-4, ages 5-6, ages 7-9).
In Gastonia, the Gastonia Police Departmemt will have its 2nd annual Easter Egg Scramble Saturday at First Assembly, 777 S. Myrtle School Rd., Gastonia. Over 3,500 eggs will be spread on the lawn for children to collect. "GOLD & SILVER" glitter eggs found during the hunt will be good for a prize. The event will begin promptly at 10:00 AM, children two years and under will get a one minute head start. Children up to six years old can participate and a $5 donation will be collected for each participant with proceeds benefitting Special Olympics, but children two years old and under can hunt for free.
Daystar FWC Church of God and the Lincoln County YMCA will hold a family day Saturday beginning at noon at the Lincolnton Y that will include an Easter egg hunt, face painting, a bounce house and other activities and they'll be serving hamburgers and hot dogs with the band, New Life Ministries, performing. The event is FREE!
Other events this weekend include the Lake Norman Covekeepers meeting
Saturday at 10 AM at Mundy House on Highway 16-Business north of Denver.
The water quality of Lake Norman will be the topic as the group meets to discuss, organize, and train a new community watch group, the Lake Norman Cove Watchers. The group, a sub-group of the Riverkeeper Foundation, is designed after neighborhood watch programs. However, instead of watching for crime, the group will be watching for pollution and development. Ben Benoit will speak on behalf of this group.
