Foundation of CVPH Hosting Annual Easter Egg Hunt

The countdown is on for the fastest event in Plattsburgh. The University of Vermont Health Network – Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) is preparing for its annual Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for Saturday, March 30 at 10 am, sharp.

Nearly 10,000 brightly colored eggs will be scattered on the hospital’s front lawn for the annual family favorite holiday tradition. And they’ll all be scooped up in a matter of about two minutes. The eggs will be stuffed with candy, and some will include a coupon for a free kid’s meal at Texas Roadhouse. Parents of children with peanut allergies should take note that some of the eggs may be stuffed with candy that has nuts or peanut butter.

The egg hunt is free and open to children ages ten and younger, with a separate hunting ground for children 3 and under. Hunters should be dressed according to weather conditions. The event is BYOB (bring your own basket), and kids will get a chance to say hello and pose for pictures with the guest of honor: the Easter Bunny.

There will be convenient parking in the Medical Office Building lots just off the Cornelia Street entrance, and CV-TEC students will help provide security services. For more information, contact Michelle Senecal at (518) 314-3359 or
