Approximately 350 people turned out for the fourth annual Easter Egg Hunt on the grounds of Islandia Village Hall on April 4. Fifty of the eggs had prize vouchers in them. All the children received a basket filled with candy, and a visit from The Easter Bunny and “Spongebob Squarepants.” Joe Guida, Islandia’s own “Singing Bus Driver,” came down to entertain the children. Everyone was treated to hot cocoa, coffee and cookies.
In addition to the Easter Egg Hunt, there was a Coloring Contest. The five village board members each chose their three favorites. For the Jellybean Counting Contest, 12-year-old Nayib Perez came the closest without going over, estimating 2,420 jellybeans in the jar. The actual count was 2,472 jellybeans.
