BROCTON - Members of the Portland Town Council have approved the use of the town's Community Park for a popular annual event. Brocton/Portland Community Festival Committee Chairs Ed Wood and Stephanie Halpainy attended council's recent meeting to announce details of the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

In its seventh year, the Easter Egg Hunt will be held March 26 at Community Park beginning at 1 p.m. The event is a free activity for children in the Brocton/Portland community and will be divided among the age groups: infants to three years; four to six; and seven to 10. A grand prize will be given for each age division to the child who finds the most eggs.

In the event of inclement weather, candy will be handed out to Egg Hunters from the St. Stephen Hotel, as has been done in previous years with bad weather. Any residents or parents with questions about the Easter Egg Hunt may contact committee chairs and organizers: Ed Wood at 792-4483; Stephanie Halpainy at 785-3183; or Al Seavy at 679-8483.

Wood and Halpainy also updated the council members and the public on details for the annual Community Festival, also held at Community Park. The two noted that details are being ironed out for this year's festival dates, and that once dates have been decided on public information will be announced to the community. Portland Town Supervisor Dan Schrantz thanked the committee for their dedication to the always-successful Easter Egg Hunt.
