Easter Egg Hunt Thank You's: Better late than never.

Time flies when you are having fun or organizing an Easter Egg Hunt.

It looked like no one was going to host a community Easter Egg Hunt in Burns Flat this year, so the mission committee of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church stepped in.

Why would a church take the lead in this quasi-pagan ritual?

Because it was an excellent place to tell candy crazed kids and their parents that God loves them, distribute gospels, and just have some fun.

The church effort was led by Heather Spence with advice from Tom Collins, but it would not have been nearly as successful without many community donors. They are:

Grett’s Conveience Store

MODA

Great Plains National Bank (Burns Flat Branch)

Among the donors were many individuals:

Tom and Shelia Collins

Tom and Sharman Spence

Anne Spence

Heather Spence

Sandra McClure

What is the plight of next year’s hunt?

The community will be pleased to know that the Cumberland Presbyterian Church has adopted the community Easter Egg Hunt for 2015 and perhaps beyond.
