As winter turns to spring, preparations for The Osborn’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt begin. The annual event is held in memory of longtime board member and former chair, Jack Miller. On Saturday, April 20, at 11:15 a.m., The Osborn (101 Theall Road, Rye) will welcome the entire community for a morning full of springtime and Easter fun. Annually, for nearly two decades, the event has been drawing hundreds of participants from throughout Westchester County, as well as southern Fairfield County, Conn. During the festivities, 6,000+ Easter eggs will be hidden for children to find, gather, and enjoy. The event is split into two groups – one for children under 3 years of age and the other for children over 3. This allows the little ones to get a head start on the hunt.
The event provides the opportunity for seniors and children to interact in a way many may not have the opportunity to do otherwise. Residents of The Osborn flank the sidelines of the great lawn and South Porch to have a birds-eye view of the annual event.
“The event is such a wonderful gathering of people of all ages to share some holiday fun,” says Matt Anderson, president and CEO of The Osborn. “It also allows visitors to enjoy The Osborn’s wonderful 56-acre campus during the most beautiful time of the year.”
The egg hunt is free and open to the public and pre-registration is NOT required. The hunt begins promptly at 11:15 a.m. with gates opening at 10:45 a.m. The Osborn is located at 101 Theall Road in Rye (just off Playland Parkway Access). Participants are asked to bring their own baskets to gather eggs. The Easter Bunny will make an appearance and be available for photos. The event features a live DJ, dancing, and games. Lunches, which include a hot dog, drink, chips, and cookie for only $5.00, will be available. For information about the Easter Egg Hunt, please call (914) 925-8218 or visit TheOsborn.org.
