Join the National Day of Volunteerism

The Town of Fountain Hills encourages involvement in government through volunteerism. Many department services are enhanced and provided with great cost savings because of the generosity of time and talent given by the citizens of Fountain Hills. Once again, Fountain Hills joins organizations across the country to take part in the 21st “Make a Difference Day”, the nation’s largest day of volunteerism. For newcomers, this is a great opportunity to form new friendships and give back to the community.
Volunteers will gather and receive their assignments on Saturday, October 26, 7:30 a.m. at Golden Eagle Park, 15900 E. Golden Eagle Blvd. The Fountain Hills “Make a Difference Day” will bring together the faith community, clubs and organizations and town volunteers with a common mission to contribute where the needs exist in our town. The jobs may include raking and cleaning up yards, cleaning up trash in garages, building wheelchair ramps for elderly homebound residents or even patching homes where owners cannot keep up with needed improvements and a variety of painting and cleaning duties.
For more information, call Heather Ware, Town Volunteer Coordinator, at 816-5108, or go to http://www.fh.az.gov and click on the “Make a Difference Day” (MaDD) icon. You may pick up a Registration form at the Community Center, Town Hall, or enroll on line at http://www.fh.az.gov.
Watch as hundreds of kids scramble to pick up more than 15,000 eggs stuffed with candy and other prizes. Held on the ball fields at Golden Eagle Park, this event is a special way for our little tykes to celebrate the spring season. Hoppy Bunny will serve as Master of Ceremonies and will be available for hugs and pictures throughout the event. Clucky the Chicken will join Hoppy Bunny again this year to hang out with kids and take photos. The event is open to children up to seven years old who must be accompanied by an adult. The kids are separated into different age groups so that toddlers can enjoy the wonder of finding an egg of their own and not be trampled by the 5-7 year-old “veterans of the hunt.”
The Easter Egg Hunt starts promptly at 9 am
Arrive early and be in place by 9:00 a.m. sharp! This lightning-fast event is all over but the pictures by 9:15! In the event of inclement weather, or bad field conditions, this event will be rescheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2013.
The Kiwanis will be at the park again this year for their popular “Pancake Breakfast”. Get to the park early and have a hearty breakfast before the main event. You can also visit with the Fountain Hills Fire Department, which will have trucks to climb on and firefighters, showing the kids their trucks and gear. No event would be complete without inflatable bouncers for the kids
