On a day that truly felt as if spring had finally arrived, more than 100 residents of the Wilson Housing Authority’s public housing community gathered Thursday for an Easter egg hunt and to enjoy the start of spring break for Wilson County Schools students.
Housing authority staffers organized the egg hunt and cookout, which were made possible by contributions from local sponsors.
The eggs and candy for the event were provided by the Wilson Walmart Supercenter and officers from the Wilson Police Department were on hand to work with the children at the event and help serve the hot dogs.
In addition to the hot dogs, which were donated by the police department, other Wilson businesses and organizations that provided support for the event were Trucking By D&B, Vaughn’s Chapel Church and Kairos Church Ministries.
The egg hunt was for children ages 0-12 and was held on the green space behind the Forrest Road Homes Community Center.
