LDFA sponsors egg drop

EVART – Children under 12 are invited to collect eggs dropped from the sky at the Evart Airport on April 14. A plane will fly over the airport and drop one thousand plastic eggs filled with candy in the grassy area beside the runway. The event is free to the public and participants should arrive by 1 p.m. Eggs will be dropped at 1:20 p.m. Children should wear closed-toed shoes to the event.

There will be a limit on the amount of eggs collected by each child depending on the number of participants. The Easter bunny also will be at the event.

Punch and cookies will be served at an open house in the terminal building during the event. Everyone is invited to tour the new facility that houses the Local Development Finance Authority.

The city of Evart, Evart Chamber of Commerce, LDFA and the Evart Moose sponsored the first-time event. Organizers would like the event to continue annually.
