Northborough – The crowd at Memorial Field in Northborough was not there for baseball on April 8. Instead, the grounds were covered with 5,000 colorful, plastic eggs filled with candy and a few hundred eager kids during the town’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The Northboro Junior Woman’s Club had run the event for many years before Northborough Moms assumed responsibility for it in 2016.

Laura Wyrsch spearheaded the effort this year with a team of dedicated moms who volunteered their time to coordinate everything from the candy donation collections to providing baked goods and warm drinks to families.

The hunt is a free event and only relies on donations from members of the community to make it a success each year. The plastic eggs were recycled so they can be used again.

Two fields were used to accommodate the different age levels of the egg hunters and the Easter Bunny even made an appearance for photos.
