Troop Meeting Easter Egg Hunt

This past Tuesday was our first ever Easter egg hunt. While it was a chaotic dash for eggs all over the church, it was a ton of fun and the scouts thoroughly enjoyed it.They were going upstairs, downstairs, left and right. The eggs were EVERYWHERE! Great job to all of the scouts who hid the eggs, they did a fantastic job!! We would also like to thank all scouts who brought in candy and eggs, it made this egg hunt work. Until next time, thank you for reading.
