Annual Easter Egg and Teen Hunt

The Pleasantville Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt for children pre-K through 5th grade was held on Saturday, April 4th at the Pleasantville Elementary School. The kids arrived early to get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny.

Teens in grades 6th through 12th also participated in their own hunt throughout the week, which began on Monday, March 30th and ended on Saturday, April 4th. They had to sign-up to play and then received clues via text, e-mail, and Facebook to eggs hidden around town. Not only did the teens have fun, but parents, grandparents, and general onlookers had a good time watching the scramble for the eggs once the clues were sent out!

A special thank you to the Pleasantville Student Councils for stuffing eggs, and LOOKS Salon & Spa, MidAmerican Energy, Iowa Realty (Michelle Greene), Murphy Family Properties and Certified Life Coach, LLC, Peoples Bank, Mesecher Sanitation, Checkerboard Restaurant, Smokey Row Coffee, McCarty Roofing, Coldwell Banker Mid-American Group, Realtors (Ken Clark), Wagner/Miller Plumbing & Heating, Bacon Family, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Casey's General Stores for their donations and financial contributions!

Pictures from both events can be found in the photo albums.
