JOHNSONBURG--For over 100 years, the Johnsonburg Community Center has stood the test of time and provided education, recreation, and purpose to the area. On Sunday, as it has done numerous times in the past, especially during Halloween Trick-or-Treating, the JCC opened its doors to welcome the Annual Easter Egg Hunt indoors when inclement weather threatened the event.
"I've always learned to have a Plan-B," said Bressler on Sunday as she and the volunteers divided up the eggs and age groups into separate areas of the Center with the younger kids in the main basketball court and older ones getting to explore the second-floor area for their treats.
"And speaking of Plan-B, the Community Center will be having a First Day Fishing Sauage and hotdog sale at the Johnsonburg Borough Council building on Saturday, April 3 beginning at 10 a.m.," said Bressler, "With so many other fundraising activities canceled or curtailed last year and into this year we thought it would be a great way to help support an outdoor activity that will be safe from many COVID-19 restrictions."
Attendees to the Easter Egg hunt were directed into the Community Center on Market Street in Johnsonburg. Divided into age groups, the kids were able to roam and gather eggs beginning at 1 p.m. In a nod to recycling, the parents and the kids were asked to open and return the eggs for future use. The Chamber of Commerce, The Johnsonburg Rotary Club, and the Community Center all helped bring this event back to the community after it was canceled last year due to COVID-19. The Volunteers would like to thank all of those who participated and helped fund the event, including the table of prizes handed out to lucky hunters who found not candy but numbered tags in their eggs.
