Boston Community Collaborative Coordinates Neighborhood Egg Hunt

Boston Community Collaborative’s 5th annual neighborhood egg hunt was enjoyed on Sunday, April 9th by a boatload of kids, along with their moms, dads, nannies, grandparents, and caregivers Sunday morning.  The weather could not have been more perfect.

This year’s hunt was again generously sponsored by The Living Room, and Boston Community Collaborative, and hosted by The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park.

Special thanks and recognition to:

The Living Room for their sponsorship of the event and for bringing coffee and cookies and goodies to the park for everyone!

Thank you to the ladies of the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park – especially Ann Babbit who hosted them in her home and fed them – for stuffing all those 2,500+ eggs this past week!

Thank you to those who came early and hid eggs – especially Ann Babbit, who even put her out of town guests to work!

Thank you to the older kids who came and helped as hiders – RJ, Paige, Naimah, Grace, Sarah, Van (visiting friend Peter – from NYC), Peter, Charlie, Sam, Leo, Joe, Natalya, Steven (sp?) from Wellesley (visiting his grandmother, a FOCCP member), Zoe, Zoe’s brother (can’t remember his name – but he was especially and impressively helpful – Zoe and brother visiting cousin RJ from The Bronx) Rian, Liam, and Maddie.

Thank you Matt Conti for coming and taking amazing photos.

Thank you to everyone who came and were polite and kind to one other – this was the best egg hunt yet.  Well done everyone!
