Bikers show soft side with easter egg hunt

The Interior B.C. Association for Injured Motorcyclists will be hosting its third Easter Egg Hunt

Not all bikers are bad people, some like to make Easter egg hunts.

The Interior B.C. Association for Injured Motorcyclists will be hosting its third annual Easter Egg Hunt at Kayola Regional Park.

“It’s something we just do for the kids, to prove that bikers aren’t mean people. Some of us are friendly family people,” laughed president Coralee Veness.

The idea came to Veness from a similar Easter egg hunt in Vernon.

The first year had around 25 kids, and last year’s event increased to 40. “We had to buy more candy,” she said.

Four volunteers buy and hide candy for children. There will also be a colouring contest and a free lunch following the hunt.

Kids of all ages are invited and registration is recommended. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To register or find out more information call 250-306-4561.
