The parking lot at Pennings Farm Market and Garden Center in Warwick was full of cars on Sat., Apr. 15 as children, accompanied by parents and older siblings, arrived to search for a variety of candy, chocolates and the golden eggs at the annual Easter Egg Hunt. This year, Pennings held a morning and afternoon session of their egg hunt to accommodate the many children who were “egg-cited” to find the treasures in different colored eggs.
Steve Pennings, co-owner of Pennings Farm Market, thanked the Warwick Lions Club and the United Martial Arts Center who helped sponsor the two egg hunts. Volunteers from the Warwick Lions Club helped park cars and assisted with crowd-control at the morning session.
“Our annual Easter Egg Hunt is always a fun family style event to kick-off the spring season at Pennings Garden Center, Ice Cream Stand and Farm,” said Pennings. “Happy Easter to all.”
Pylin Messenger, who is only eight and a half months old, attended his first egg hunt. He was excited to find his first egg and to meet the Easter Bunny.
Three-year-old Jace Lanere, of Warwick, had a blast. His mom, Jenny, said, “Jace loves celebrating Easter and hunting for eggs. This was right up his alley!”
Nola Daly, one and a half years old, of Warwick, was so happy when she found some yummy candy. This was her second year participating in the Easter Egg Hunt at Pennings.
Six-year-old Arthur Buliung and his sister, Madison, nine years old, of Warwick, hunted together for eggs. Arthur said, “I have never seen so many eggs in my life. This was the best Egg Hunt ever!”
