HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The Hanscom Chapel will host a community Easter egg hunt on the chapel grounds here April 8 at 10 a.m.

The community-wide event is open to all families with base access and will feature crafts, prizes, and food.

“This will be a wonderful event to celebrate the spring and Easter season,” said Chaplain (Maj.) Kimberly Hall, installation chaplain and organizer for the event.

The Easter Egg hunt portion of the event is open for children ages 2 to 10.

“While the ages are 2 to 10, no young children will be turned away,” said Hall.

Registration for the egg hunt will open at 10 a.m., and children will be able to find eggs based on their age groups. The youngest group will start at 10:30 a.m.

Children should bring their own baskets.

“We’ll have thousands of eggs hidden, so everyone will have a chance to enjoy the hunt,” said Hall.

The event will also feature a creative crafts corner and face painting, as well as grilled foods and snacks.

Hall said the chapel is looking for volunteers to help hide eggs, facilitate registration, and monitor events.

“I’m so excited to bring the community together for this event,” said Hall.
