Couple Hosts 30th Annual Egg Hunt for Community

DELAWARE TOWNSHIP — Dozens of kids came out to an Easter egg hunt in Northumberland County.

Lawrence and Ruby Reese held their 30th annual Easter egg hunt at their home near Watsontown on Saturday.

The couple says they started the hunt to do something fun for kids and welcome everyone to attend.

The Easter candy is usually donated by people of the community.

Ruby Reese tells us at other egg hunts, younger kids always got overrun by bigger kids and not get as much candy.

The couple tells us every year at their event there are different trails for each age group.
