Easter Egg Hunt for visually-impaired children at Wesley Homes this Saturday


More Easter Egg FUN – this time on Saturday, March 28 at Wesley Homes:

“Beeping” Easter Egg Hunt for visually impaired children at Wesley Homes on March 28th, 10am – noon.

Visually impaired children and their families will fill their Easter baskets with “beeping” Easter eggs during a special Easter egg hunt with CenturyLink, supported by the State of Washington Department of Services for the Blind, on March 28, 2015. The unique eggs, provided by the CenturyLink Pioneers’ Washington State Chapter, are engineered with electronic circuit boards, batteries and telephone speakers to emit distinctive beeping sounds. As a result, visually impaired children can use their hearing to find the eggs and share in the joy and sense of accomplishment of a successful Easter egg hunt.
