Little Village & the Big Easter Egg Hunt

On April 15, 2017, Little Village Toy & Book Shop raised over $1,800 in donations for our club through their spectacular Easter Egg Hunt! Kids of all ages searched for eggs, filled with over $10K worth of fun toys & prizes. The hunt drew hundreds of participants and took place on the Riverglen side of the Littleton River District covered foot bridge.

Kids of all ages participated in this year’s Easter Egg Hunt!

The crew at Little Village Toy & Book Shop organized the event, and at times it was difficult to tell who had more fun – the Little Village team or the kids. All age groups were represented, ranging from toddlers to twelve-year-olds. Each had their turns hunting for colorful Easter eggs.

Encouraging healthy choices is something we strive to do at the Boys & Girls Club of the North Country, so we were happy to hear this was a candy-free egg hunt. That’s right -all those eggs were filled with toys and prizes, not candy!

 

Angie is surrounded by hundreds of eggs at the Little Village Toy & Book Shop. It took weeks to fill them all!

 

The generosity of Little Village will surely have an impact, allowing us to offer programs and services to more kids after-school and in our upcoming summer camp.

The team at Little Village gave their time and energy to¬†filling eggs and planning logistics and the final result was amazing! Turnout far exceeded expectations and we are grateful to have such a community-minded local business on Littleton’s Main Street, in particular one that stocks great books & educational toys!

 

 

 

 

Thank you as well to Blue Jay Coffee & Tea Bar, who offered free coffee or tea to the first 100 donors of $10 or more! In promoting and helping to get the word out about the event, your support for the egg hunt truly made it successful. Enjoy Blue Jay Coffee & Tea Bar near the non-fiction section of the bookstore for house-crafted coffee & teas, along with a tasty breakfast and lunch menu.

Please keep these kindnesses in mind as you shop along Main St. and remember to support those businesses who have done so much to support the Boys & Girls Club of the North Country.
