West Blocton’s Remote Easter Egg Hunt Prize Drawing Tonight

The annual Easter Egg Hunt couldn't happen as planned, but the innovative work-around was a huge success, and helped boost morale throughout town.


What began as a break in tradition for the Town of West Blocton, turned into possibly a new tradition as Mayor Daniel Sims woke up Saturday with a new idea: a remote egg hunt.

After enlisting the help of Kathy McCulley and Blane Sherron, Mayor Sims put the plan into motion. Sunday morning kids all over West Blocton woke up with an egg hidden in their yard. Take a picture of it after you find it, post the pic to Facebook with it tagged to Mayor Sims, and you’re entered in a drawing for one of 20 $50 prizes!

The response was overwhelming, and the number of entries caused the contest drawing to be delayed a day. Check the West Blocton Farmers’ Market Facebook page for a Live drawing tonight at 7:00 p.m.!
