For 24 years Robin Mathews, Assistant Director of
Parks & Rec has partnered with the Rotary Club of
Ridgefield, whose chair for this event for the past
15 years has been Simon Cooper, to conduct the
quickest event in Town – 2016 Egg Scramble-2.
Rotarians “lay” 6,000eggs for the
children to gather.Simon purchases the eggs from an organizantion in Missouri which is like Sphere, that supports and employs special needs people. The children (and parents) gather outside the designated areas (grouped by age – above is the 3 to 4 group) until 11am when the start signal is given. At 11:01 the ground is clear! The anticipation and joy on the children’s faces make this event worthwhile.
A highlight of the event is the visit from the Easter Bunny!
