ROXBURY, NJ - Any disappointment endured by youngsters due to the 1-week postponement of this year's township Easter egg hunt was likely forgotten Saturday when the event took place under clear, if brisk, skies.

Sponsored by the Roxbury Township Recreation Department, the egg hunt took place at Horseshoe Lake Park. More than 500 kids showed up and had fun.

"There were a lot of really happy kids," said Roxbury Recreation Program Director Sandie DiDomenico, who offered "special thanks to Walmart" for helping with supplies.

In attendance were Recreation Advisory Committee members Ed Hade, Dave Stierli and Jim Gordon. Recreation Department Director Director Keith Knudsen announced the event, with help from DiDomenico and fellow department staffer Kathy Boesner.

The Easter Bunny was on hand and received some help from two members of the Roxbury High School Interact Club Doug DiDomenico and Luke Tricarico, when time came to hide eggs, DiDomenico said. We had two members from the Interact Club as EB’s helpers to hide eggs: Doug DiDomenico and Luke Tricarico.

"All kids checked their eggs for a special note," Di Domenico said. "If they had the note, they received a special prize from the Easter Bunny: a big stuffed bunny."

She said 11 children won the big bunnies, but all kids got to choose an extra treat, either a chocolate bunny or a Ring Pop. As is usually the case, the Easter Bunny was packing extra goodies, so when children encountered him they tended to walk away with extra eggs and candies, noted DiDomenico.

He also did a lot of posing for photographs. "Easter Bunny had pictures taken with children, parents, staff and pit bull," DiDomenico said.

Necessary Discussion and Debate of Addressing School Violence

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

As of late, due to most disturbing acts of violence against children in our schools, there is much vigorous debate regarding gun control and protection of our children and grand-children.

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.

I think that exploration in three areas needs to be more thoroughly discussed and debated. The first is ...
