The Ansonia FFA chapter, along with the help of the Ansonia First Church of God, the Ansonia Methodist Church, and the Ansonia American Legion, hosted an Easter Eggstravaganza at the Ansonia Local Schools on Saturday, April 15th. This Eggstravaganza consisted of many activities that children from local communities could participate in throughout the day. Kids of various ages loved hunting for over 4,000 eggs on the school property. Children from ages 0-11 were divided up into multiple age groups and then escorted to a specified area on the school property to hunt for their eggs. In addition, one child from each age group was lucky enough to find the golden egg, awarding them an Easter basket filled with goodies.

Visitors also had fun coloring eggs, having their face painted, and interacting with a variety of animals at the petting zoo. Goats, sheep, rabbits, and ducks were all on hand to greet the kids and families.

While the “eggcellent” activities were going on, the Ansonia Local School Greenhouse enjoyed their 2017 Grand Opening. Patrons found hundreds of different types of flowers, garden seed packs, garden plants, individual pots, and hanging baskets to help meet all of their spring-time decorative needs.

Starting on Monday, April 24th, the greenhouse will be open from 4 pm - 6 pm on weekdays, from 9 am - 3 pm on Saturdays, and from 12 pm - 3pm on Sundays through the end of May.
