Annual Rotary Egg Hunt Fills Baskets of Egg-citement

A sea of children pick Goleta's Girsh Park clean of any hidden eggs and other prize finds

The Annual Rotary Egg Hunt was held Saturday at Girsh Park in Goleta.

It took both Goleta Rotary Clubs (Night and Noontime clubs) many hours of planning the Annual Rotary Egg Hunt, stuffing thousands of eggs with candy, setting up the games and hiding the eggs for the Big Egg Hunt, for the hundreds of children who enjoyed the free event. There were tables with colorful stickers, crayons and ink stamps for bag decorations. Face painters were a favorite of the children, and the line of patient kids waiting their turn, was the proof.

There alo was an egg-rolling contest and three air jumpers to entertain the children. The Easter Bunny was even there to cuddle with kids and take pictures. It was a beautiful sunny morning and the smiles on the children’s faces told the Rotary members how important their community service is.

The Rotary Club of Goleta meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at Elephant Bar, 521 Firestone Road. Guests are always welcome.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
