Easter egg hunt set for April 19 in Atherton park

The Easter Bunny will be the star, but not the only attraction at the Atherton Dames' annual easter egg hunt set for Saturday, April 19. A magician for those who want to be enthralled, and firefighters for kids who might relish meeting the person they inevitably want to be when they grow up will also be part of the mix at this year's event in Holbrook-Palmer Park.

The hunt begins at 10 a.m. and participants are encouraged to get there early.

Also on the day's agenda are breakfast treats and beverages; a performance by Gerald the Magician; face-painting by Gigi and Joanna Sachs; picture-taking opportunities with the Easter Bunny; and a chance to get a look at fire trucks and an Atherton police car, and to meet firefighters from the Menlo Park Fire Protection District.

The event committee is chaired by Anje Stevenson and City Councilwoman Elizabeth Lewis, who, according to an Atherton Dames spokeswoman, had the support of numerous community volunteers and groups including the Atherton Dames, the Holbrook-Palmer Park Association and the Menlo-Atheron Little League.

Tickets can be purchased at the event for $10 per person with cash or checks only; there is no charge for children 12 months and under.
