Legacy West Pioneers and UCB Annual Easter Egg Hunt

On April 13th, 2019, from 11:00am to 1:00pm

the UCB, in conjunction with the Legacy West Pioneers, will be holding its annual Easter egg hunt. Families with children are invited to meet at the Utah State Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired at 250 North 1950 West, Salt Lake City. Come and hunt for beeping eggs; this is a great test of the use of hearing to find an object. Sighted participants who are up for the challenge will be blind-folded. Candy will be distributed to all those who find beeping eggs. A hot dog lunch will be provided to all who participate. Reservations are required by those who plan to eat lunch.

Please RSVP with the number of attendees to either Connie 801-266-2184, Teresa 801-966-0188, or Leslie 801-292-1156.

In case of inclement weather, the egg hunt will be held indoors. So, don't let bad weather keep you and your children from enjoying this wonderful event.
