HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – Planning for the annual Hillsborough Rotary Club Easter Egg Hunt took place over several months, with hours spent Saturday morning spreading thousands of eggs across the fields at the Youth Football Complex on Triangle Road.

Armed with baskets, buckets and bags, hundreds of kids 8 years old and younger - and their parents - showed up for a crack at some of the eggs, and in a matter of minutes . . .

The scramble was on.

A tradition for the past 16 years, the Rotary organized the scramble into three different age groups to ensure all kids had a chance to gather up some eggs.

The hunt began at 11 a.m. for those 3 and younger; 4-5 years old, 11:10 a.m. and those 6-8, 11:20 a.m.

Hot dogs and hot chocolate were served after the hunt. 

The Hillsborough NJ Rotary Club has over 40 members from Hillsborough and surrounding communities.   Members include business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. 

The Hillsborough Rotary Club meets every Wednesday, at 6 p.m. at Pheasants Landing Restaurant in Hillsborough.
