    Things were really “hopping” on Saturday, April 7 when Joy Evangelical Lutheran Church held its first annual Easter Egg Hunt.  This event was attended by about 70 children, mainly from the Upward Soccer league and their siblings.
    The Easter Bunny hid 500 plastic eggs filled with goodies around the church building and soccer fields.  Pastor Edward Holloway, Jr. hid a special “golden egg” containing a nice monetary prize.  There was a very happy winner of this golden egg.
