12th Annual Egg Hunt is Best Yet!

Saturday, April 7th, IBNA held its 12th Annual Egg Hunt in India Basin Shoreline Park.  Approximately 50 kids showed up to hunt eggs, play games, meet their local SFPD officers and SFFD firefighters, play with farm animals, and enjoy the delicious food.  If you weren’t there, you missed a great time!

This year, we almost did not hold the Egg Hunt, because Jill (who usually does the lion’s share of the work) was unavailable, and other Board members were too busy to take it on.  Luckily for all the local kids, Erin Farrell stepped up and took over.  Erin did a spectacular job!  She recruited 25 AmeriCorps volunteers who work with her in the local public schools, and together, they wrangled donations of supplies, did outreach, prepared food, organized games, colored and hid eggs, and whew, the list goes on! The Egg Hunt was a huge success due to Erin and her team of AmeriCorps volunteers. And, luckily for us, Jill Fox was able to attend the Egg Hunt and help out in myriad ways, such as putting together wonderful prize packs for golden egg winners. Most of all, we were lucky to have Jill there wearing the Big Bunny costume!

A big THANK YOU!! to Jill, Erin, and all of the AmeriCorps volunteers for doing such a great job.  Another big THANK YOU!! to all of the IBNA Sponsors who donated funds, supplies, assistance, farm animals, food, and more to make this Egg Hunt our best yet:  SFFD Station 25; SFPD Bayview Station; RFJ Meiswinkel Company; Pump It Up; City Grazing; Mentoring for Success; BAYAC (Bay Area Youth Agency Consortium); AmeriCorps; and our IBNA Board and Members who helped out in so many ways.  Well done!!
