EASTER AT KINGSTONThe Waynedale Community Improvement Team (WCIT) and several area businesses will again sponsor an Easter Egg Hunt for the Waynedale Community at the Southwest Conservation Club on Saturday, March 26, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The Conservation Club is located at 5703 Bluffton Road.

This is a free outdoor event offered to encourage community spirit.

If you would like to attend, simply bring an Easter basket and a camera for photos of children with the Easter Bunny. No RSVP is required. Special areas will be reserved for children ages 1-6 and 7-12. In an effort to “Go Green” the plastic eggs once opened will be recycled for use next year. A special prize will be awarded for the child from each age group who finds a golden egg.

“This Easter Egg Hunt would not be possible if it wasn’t for the great businesses we have in Waynedale,” said Beulah Matczak, an organizer of the event along with other individuals. “We should support these businesses in any way we can. Waynedale is a great place to live and work,” she added. A sign listing sponsors will be on display at the event.

Easter in Waynedale is one of several community activities organized by WCIT and sponsored by various local businesses and residents. Christmas in Waynedale is another example of a successful community event created by the group. The team is also working on a variety of other projects including a Community Center, access to Fort Wayne Trails, sidewalks and enhancing the Waynedale Parade.

WCIT is made up of local volunteers who are interested in improving the quality of life for Waynedale residents. Anyone is welcome to attend a meeting or join the team as long as they live or work in the greater Waynedale area.
