MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - Candy filled eggs lined the fitness trail at Mountainside’s Annual Egg Hunt, sponsored by the Rescue Squad on Saturday.  Dozens of children awaited the siren’s blast at noon, and ran to collect as many plastic eggs as they could find hidden in the brush.  One very special golden egg was also in the mix of approximately 500 plastic eggs, carefully placed by EMT volunteers, and a big chocolate bunny was awarded to the lucky youngster who found it.

Egg patrol EMT members Maddy Cocchia and Maggie Roden stood guard on the trail to ensure safety, while Emma Didzbalis, Martin Roden and Chris Sileo held the youngsters back until the official start. 

Julius Korn, Eric Pastore and Lucy Fromtling, also part of “the egg squad,” assisted the Easter Bunny after the hunt, as children posed for photos in front of one of the squad’s emergency vehicles.   

 Even Mother Nature cooperated, ensuring a bright and sunny day.  Welcome Spring!

Fortunately, there is a terrific candidate in New Jersey's 7th Congressional District who can beat incumbent Leonard Lance. That candidate is Tom Malinowski.

I'm a lifelong New Jersey resident -- including ...
