(Town of Sullivan, NY -April 2013) The town of Sullivan hosted their annual Easter egg hunts March 30. The weather cooperated and we had a great turnout at Sullivan and Chapman parks.
We had a total of 211 kids participate in the fun-packed event at Sullivan Park, and 116 children traveled to Chapman Park for the excitement of the annual hunt. It was a great event for all the kids and their families. The winners for our coloring contest were: Kaydence Cook, 7; Tristan Enders, 8; Erica Ezzo, 4; Trinity Jenkins, 4; and Gage Valenti 2.
This year we had many volunteers and numerous donations from various organizations that helped make this event possible. The Town of Sullivan Parks and Recreation would like to thank the Sullivan Community Council, The Chittenango Rotary Club, the Bridgeport Lions Club, William Cain American Legion Post 1287 and Legion Auxiliary, the Sullivan Leisure Time Club and Kinney Drugs of Chittenango.
Without all of the generous donations from our supportive community organizations, these events would not be as successful as they are.
Running events like these, the success is always dependent on the volunteers! Without their assistance, it would be impossible to make this event a successful and an enjoyable experience for all of the participants. We had a number of volunteers who helped with this event.
A huge thank you is extended to: The KIDS Choice Chittenango Middle School after school program, the CCS Varsity Softball Team, all of the SCC Board Members, The Leisure Time Club Members and all of the community volunteers who came out to help.
Your willingness to extend a helping hand to our youth is what makes the town of Sullivan so exceptional!
When special events take place in the town of Sullivan, is great to see how the community members and the community organizations work together to make the event noteworthy and memorable for its community members. We look forward to working with all of you on future events!
Matthew Moore is Recreation Supervisor for the Town of Sullivan Parks and Recreation Office.
