Fruitvale Easter Egg Hunt will take place Friday at Haines Park at 11am. Trail's will be Friday at 11am at Gyro Park.

The Fruitvale Fire Fighters Society is hosting its third-annual Beaver Valley Easter Egg Hunt Friday at Haines Park at 11 a.m. Beyond planting 10,000 chocolate eggs (plus supplying peanut-free treats for children with allergies), the non-profit group of local fire fighters will be offering hot dogs and hot chocolate (supplied by Liberty Foods and Kootenay Savings Credit Union) by donation. Money raised goes right back into the community to support individuals and families in crisis. Since 2006, the society has donated almost $16,000 to assist families with expenses for hotels, food and transportation to the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver or medical treatments in Kelowna and other facilities. A similar event is planned for Trail at Gyro Park Friday, starting at 11 a.m. Free hot chocolate and coffee will be available and the Kiwanis Club will be selling hot dogs and hamburgers with all proceeds going to Canadian Tire JumpStart.
