WARSAW — The following community Easter events are set to happen this year:
- The Akron Chamber of Commerce has its annual Easter egg hunt at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 3, at Pike Memorial Park.

Egg hunt times go by age, with one adult allowed to assist those in the ages 0-3 group. Hunt times are: ages 0-3, 11:15 a.m.; ages 4-6, 11:20 a.m.; ages 7-9, 11:25 a.m.; and ages 10-12, 11:30 a.m.

This year’s event will be a little different than in years past. The eggs collected will have a prize inside for the kids to keep. The hunt will be divided by age group, from toddlers through age 10, and each child will be allowed to select six eggs.
In years past, the eggs were exchanged for different coin denominations depending on the color, and the eggs were then recycled for use again the following year. This year, the kids will take their found eggs home with them instead.
