Lily Osborne – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Quill and Scroll Club organized their annual Easter egg hunt for the Mini Mustangs Thursday. Members of the club filled and hid hundreds of eggs for the preschoolers to find.
Seniors Kirina Lakhwani and Nate Russell were two of the members that helped hide all of the eggs.
Lakhwani said that the event took some planning.
“We began preparing for this a couple of weeks ago,” she said.
The Quill and Scroll members prepared by buying all of the plastic eggs and filling them with candy beforehand. The members then started hiding them before lunch.
“The hunt took about an hour or so to set up with all of us helping,” said Russell. A handful of club members took the time to hide all the eggs and make sure the preschoolers would have a good time.
The club did a great job carrying out the egg hunt. Mini-Mustangs seemed to love everything, including the “real life” Easter Bunny.
Haley, a Mini Mustang, said, “I love Easter and candy and the Easter Bunny.”
Another preschooler named Blake was thrilled about all the candy he was able to grab.
“I got, like, a hundred eggs,” he said.
The Mini-Mustangs not only got to find eggs, but also met the Easter Bunny and were given bunny-shaped goodie bags.
“I enjoy being a part of this event because I love to see how happy it makes the little kids,” Lakhwani said with a huge smile on her face.
Both the preschoolers and their parents were pleased to come to the egg hunt that marked the end of a short school week.
