An eggs-cellent surprise
Posted: April 08, 2015

The Columbus Volunteer Fire Department held its annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 4, in Columbus Township’s Mather Park. As soon as the horn sounded, children of all ages began collecting plastic eggs filled with candy and slips of paper, which were later exchanged for prizes. The fire department once again gave away bicycles to four lucky participants. Local businesses donated money so CVFD could purchase four brand-new bicycles, as well as candy and other prizes, from Walmart. Pam Walton, a social member of CVFD, organized the annual event. The bike winners, from left, are Geoffrey Petty, Sabrina Ploss, Connor Mooney and Phabian Sacchetti. Sources said Sacchetti was so excited about his new bike that he refused to get off of it.
