On March 31, 2018 the Friends and Park Manager Kristine Uribe joined with the Scottsville American Legion Smith-Warren Post #367, the Village of Scottsville and Town of Wheatland Recreation Department to provide an egg hunt that was part of a most successful Spring Event.
The event stated with about 200 anxious children with their parents ready to seek out 1,118 candy filled eggs. Some eggs contained slips of paper alerting the finders to special prizes like a chocolate bunny, stuffed animal or candy filled basket. Ninety Parks string backpacks were given away and we also had a jelly bean contest. The winner of the jelly bean contest received an Empire Pass allowing free vehicle access to all NYS Parks and Historic sites for one year. The young person winning this prize guessed correctly that the jar contained 1000 jelly beans. Image and video by Fran Gotcsik
After the egg hunt, the children enjoyed a magic show, a raffle for stuffed animals and lunch. Thank you to all those who contributed to making this such a successful event and for allowing the Friends to participate. See the GVGSP Facebook Page for more photos.
