Annual Easter Eggstravaganza brings fun to 'everybunny'
DAEGU GARRISON — The U.S. Army Garrison Daegu community joined FMWR in its annual Easter Eggstravaganza celebration, Saturday at the Camp Walker Evergreen Community Club. A pancake breakfast, Easter crafts, and the Easter Bunny proved to be enough to get things hopping as adults and toddlers alike came together to enjoy a few hours of fun and games. After enjoying a hearty pancake breakfast, the long time tradition of Easter egg hunting took control of the day.
By all accounts, the brisk morning chill did more to invigorate the children, than to stifle their excitement. With baskets at the ready, and divided into various age groups, participants eagerly and anxiously began scouring a portion of the Evergreen Golf Course to locate the hidden eggs. The colorful plastic eggs became quite the sought after treasure for community participants. Leading the way with the most eggs in his basket was 11-year old Nicholas Tapia, along with his two brothers, and younger sister. Calling the Easter egg hunt a success, Jesus Tapia, father of the winning Tapia’s said, “This was a great event. It meant having more time to enjoy with family and friends.”
Among the familiar faces taking part in the annual Eggstravaganza were Col. Kathleen Gavle, USAG Daegu commander, and Darryl Chandler, Chief of the Community Recreation Division at FMWR. The two Area IV leaders showed their support—taking photos and chatting with community members, including the ever-smiling Easter Bunny.
