After the hunt, while your rushing to see what you got in your eggs, there will be a pizza dinner. Please bring your own flashlight and bag to collect eggs. Parents, please feel free to stick around during the event, as it may not take up the entire hour scheduled.

 In an effort to streamline operations and improve the integrity of our data by removing outdated and duplicative records, we have chosen to start fresh with an improved software to ensure less challenges experienced by our staff and residents from potential errors and that all information is accurate moving forward. 

Our current database is over 15 years old and contains thousands of users who may have moved or are deceased. In addition there are also hundreds and hundreds of duplicate accounts which our current software was incapable of preventing. We wish it was as simple as simply exporting our old database, but it would result in thousands of invalid accounts.
