Clover Hose egg hunt, food drive set
MOUNT CARMEL - The Clover Hose annual Easter egg hunt for local children up to 10 years of age is set for 2 p.m. Sunday, March 24, at the Mount Carmel baseball fields at Railroad and Hickory streets.
The event is a means of saying thank you to the community for its support of local fire departments and emergency services personnel. The event includes a visit from the Easter Bunny and the Clover's mascot, the Green Gator.
The baseball fields are covered with Easter eggs distributed on the fields by members of Clover Hose Company. In addition to collecting eggs, every child who attends will receive a gift.
Those driving into the complex are asked to use the Market street entrance by the borough swimming pool, and to remember to watch for children and allow for passage of the fire apparatus when parking.
Clover Hose and local merchants are again sponsoring a food drive throughout the borough until March 29. Containers are placed at Academy Sports Center, Boyer's Market, Community Pharmacy, Clover Hose Co, Grayson's Butcher Shop, Matlow's, Mount Carmel Library, Puff's, Scicchitano's Ace Hardware, Shaulinski's, Vine Street Hoagie Shop and Winnie the Pooh Daycare. Food collected will be given to the local food bank and distributed to people of Mount Carmel.
