PCA Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for March 30

By webmaster - Posted on Mar 24, 2013

Last year's Easter Egg Hunt was awesome! Join us this year on Saturday, March 30.

The 16th annual Parshallville Community Association Easter Egg Hunt will be held on Saturday, March 30 at the Parshallville Cider Mill at 11:00am.

Residents look forward to PCA's most popular event. Children of all ages from Parshallville gather on the Saturday before Easter to hunt for the approximately 900 candy-filled eggs hidden on the property. Parents and grandparents watch the fun while catching up with the latest news in the neighborhood.

Prizes will be awarded. Some eggs contain prize tickets, and there will be a “guess the number of jelly beans” contest.

Children must bring their own container and be accompanied by an adult. The hunt is held rain or shine, so dress for the weather! Parking is available. Refreshments for adults and children are provided. The Easter Egg Hunt is free.

Please join us on Saturday, March 30 for a fun morning. Bring your cameras!

Fun Fact

According to a long-time local man, the pond used to have lots of big fish and recreation. There were wooden rowboats for rent on the pond, upstream across from the “peninsula”. Also there were two docks and people came to fish the pond. Fish caught included: 5 and 6 pound bass; crappies (speckled bass); northern pike; catfish; blue gills; warmouth bass; walleye. There used to be no fence under the mill around the wheel, and the kids spear fished there. Crayfish were caught at night by the kids, using flashlights. It was an eerie sight seeing those lights below the dam. In the daytime, the kids stood under the dam, getting sprayed by the force of water. (I remember this-my kids did it.) Bullhead and catfish were planted in the pond. The walleye in our pond went to Lake Shannon when the dam broke.
