The Easter Bunny visits Eagles Shade Road

Last week, the Easter Bunny dropped by Eagles Shade Road and hid eggs for about 20 children and grandchildren of Eagles members. He came out a little later to view his handiwork as the “Under 6” group wrapped up its search.

The children were separated into two groups: the “Under 6” with eggs mostly in plain sight and the 7-12 group that had to search a little harder at a different location for their rewards.

Mr. Bunny then took the children inside the Lodge and had them pick eggs out of a basket. The number inside of each egg gave them a stuffed bunny to take home.

Eagles members wrapped up the event by providing lunch for the parents and kids.

The Eagles Shade Road Easter event was a first for the local organization. Worthy President Steffanie Baker added it to the different events throughout the year that the Lodge provides for its members. In addition to its family events, the Greenville Eagles serves its community through charity giving to local organizations such as the Darke County Cancer Association, Shriners Burn Centers and Breast Cancer Awareness.

The Eagles premier offering to the community is its Independence Day Celebration, held annually at Eagles Shade Road. Last year more than 3,000 people enjoyed food, refreshments, three different bands and the most spectacular fireworks display in Darke County.

Membership information to the Fraternal Order of Eagles is available in the Social Room of the downtown location, FOE 2177, on Third Street.
