Every year, the Jaycees help out with The Kent Recreational Department's Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday of Easter week. Jaycees are responsible for hiding eggs (usually chucking buckets full of eggs in designated areas of Fred Fuller Park), keeping over-zealous children and parents at bay until the Hunt begins, and making sure the age restrictions for each area are followed. It's a fun and easy Jaycees project to get involved with.
