Saint Lucy Society Sponsors Beeping Spring Egg Hunt at Perkins School for the Blind on March 30, 2013

MAPVI & Perkins School for the Blind Invite you to a Beeping Spring Egg Hunt! Saturday, March 30th 10:00 am

We’ll meet at the Grousbeck Center on the Perkins campus in Watertown for snacks, crafts and an egg hunt. The eggs will be in three separate areas: one for children with vision, one for children with low or no vision and one for children in wheelchairs. The second two areas will have beeping eggs!

This event is free for all families!

This event is made possible through special funding from the St Lucy’s Club of Boston. Thank you!

Please RSVP by 3/16/13: Reserve your spot at this event by contacting Amber Bobnar at or 617-923-1241. Please include how many adults will be attending and how manhy kids will be hunting in each area (sighted area, visually impaired area or wheelchair area).

Bring Your Own Basket!
We’ll have prizes for the children who find the special egg hidden in each section and little goodie bags for all participants!
