Niagara Falls, New York -- The Saturday before Easter more than 150 children of 107th and 914th Airlift Wing members gathered at the Falcon Club here on base for a few hours of Easter festivities. Children had the opportunity to fine tune their search and recovery skills during an Easter egg hunt, where eggs were scattered throughout the surrounding grounds. Each of the eggs were filled with candy treats, with three also including a golden ticket. The lucky golden ticket holders won one a large chocolate bunny each. "This was a real nice day," said Staff Sgt. Kelly Sayer, 107th member. "My kids had a blast," she added. The children also had the opportunity with the help of the Niagara County Chapter of the Red Cross to decorate and consume Easter themed cookies. Additionally prizes were handed out to both adults and children who came closest to guessing the correct number of jelly beans in the jar. Children also received raffle tickets for door prizes provided by the Niagara County Chapter of the Red Cross. "This was Johnathon's very first Easter egg hunt," said Lt. Col. Deanna Miller, 107th member. "He really enjoyed it, especially meeting the Easter Bunny," she added. Not wanting the youngsters to fill up on Easter goodies alone, a pizza party capped the day's events.
