Cairo Nebraska Easter Egg Hunt

2014 Easter Egg Hunt

It was a beautiful day for an Easter egg hunt with sunny skies on Saturday morning.

Many children and their parents were on hand at the Centura Hills golf course for the 9th annual egg hunt.

Before the mad dash for the 1000 colored eggs packed by members of the Cairo United Methodist Church, children registered for 2 special Easter baskets donated by the gals from Bosselman’s Pump and Pantry #4.

The hunt — for ages birth to age 10 — lasted only a few minutes with all the eggs quickly snatched up by children.

The eggs were filled with candy, toys, pencil erasers and plenty of memories.

Berkley Strode and Jayden Molczyk were the drawing winners for the Bosselmans’ Pump and Pantry baskets.

13 golden eggs were hidden containing certificates to pick up Easter baskets donated from these area businesses: Pathway Bank, Pathway Financial, The Clip Joint, Touch of Class, The Watering Hole, Planter Paradise, Hagie Manufacturing, Troy’s Total Car Care, Baasch and Son’s, Nitsch Gallery, Western National Bank, ABC Daycare and the Cairo Village Office.

Junk Jaunt Changes for 2014

junk jaunt at cairo10 years ago Walt Sorensen helped start Junk Jaunt.  Walt currently holds a position on the Junk Jaunt board.  He has also served as Cairo’s Junk Jaunt coordinator from the beginning. Junk Jaunt originally started with 150 booths and has grown to nearly 600 booths with 20,000 visitors who travel the Junk Jaunt route.   Walt has worked very hard to build Junk Jaunt into what it is today.  He made Cairo one of the largest stops on the jaunt, which loops around highways 11, 91 & 2.  Walt is stepping down from his position as Cairo’s Junk Jaunt coordinator to focus on sales in his own booth. Thank you Walt for the many hours you put in to make Junk Jaunt a great success.

Kim Hostetler will be Cairo’s Junk Jaunt coordinator for 2014.  She is already receiving registrations for 2014 booth space.  If you have rented booth space to vendors in previous years and would like to do so again please contact Kim to list your booth space as available.junkjaunt@cairocommunity.com or 308-380-5066

Cairo is adding new areas for vendors at Christ Lutheran Church and Robinson’s field behind New Hope school.  More vendor locations means better parking for everyone who attends Junk Jaunt.  Entertainment, open air church services, Cairo specific maps and t-shirt sales are just a few of the additions being planned for the 2014 junk jaunt.

You can find information about booth space registration at junkjaunt.cairocommunity.com
