Local business hosts Easter egg hunt for the community
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
With Easter coming up, one local business wanted to do something to celebrate with the community.
First Northern Credit Union hosted an Easter egg hunt Saturday at its Rockford branch.
More than 50 kids came out for the hunt, as well as face painting, coloring and an Easter-themed photo-booth. And of course...candy.
Organizers wanted to have this free event to give back to its members as well as the community.
"We've never had an Easter egg hunt before, and we decided to do it first time," said Jon Pick, the district manager of First Northern Credit Union. "We didn't know if we'd have two kids or 100 and we had a good response and they had a great time."
With its big success, First Northern Credit Union plans to host the egg hunt every year from now on.
