PFSP Easter Egg hunt at Goodyear Park was a big success!

Around noon Kyle and I arrived at Goodyear Park for a second annual Easter Egg Hunt. As our helpers spread out the little plastic eggs throughout the park, Kyle and I braced ourselves for the worst as the park seemed almost deserted.

Slowly but surely small family groups began arriving with bright little buckets in hand. Before we knew it we were surrounded by parents and kids playing and talking. At 1 o’clock we gathered families together at the northern Pavilion and let the kids loose to gather a few eggs a piece. Two special golden eggs were found quite quickly by two lucky hunters, who won a Custom Perimeter Skatedeck with Grip tape Jessica meier mother and son Donavyn fehd 7, and a stuffed 2015 Easter Bunny Ethan erickson father and son camdin erickson 4. The rest of the eggs were filled with wristbands, stickers, and other goodies. All participants of the hunt went away with smiling faces.

The Easter Egg hunt is one of two events put on annually by the PFSP where the overall goal is not to raise money but awareness of the Project. We discussed the current state of Goodyear Park, and how progress is being made on the skate park project. It is reassuring to hear people express their support for the Skatepark Project. It is equally exiting to be able to tell them that the City of Portage and the Parks and Recreation department are currently looking for engineers to design the park with hopes to break ground in 2016!

The PFSP is still fervently raising funds to build the Skatepark addition to Goodyear Park. The more money we raise this year, the more awesome the park becomes next year. The Portage Family Skatepark Project has a variety of ways to donate, From a PayPal donation on our website: http://portageskatepark.org/, to writing a personal check for a tax deductible donation, or even buy a personalized brick to be used in the construction of the park. The PFSP will also be at a variety of Fundraising events this summer.
