“We are always looking for some kind of Eagle project that they are capable of working. I talked with a person on base who works with specials needs people, and it went from there,” Scott Dixon, Assistant Scout Master, said.
The children of Hill AFB are in for a special treat on Easter weekend, since there will be two Easter egg hunts happening on Saturday, March 30.
One will take place at the Hill AFB Museum, and the other will take place on base. In the interest of fairness, both egg hunts have sectioned off age groups so that the younger children will compete against each other without the older kids having an automatic advantage.
The Museum Easter Egg Hunt has grown to be an anticipated yearly event.
