Fil-Americans celebrate modern-day Easter egg hunt

By: Marie C. Dominguez

Date Posted: 1999-04-10

Easter is a time of spring festivals, a time to welcome back the tulips, the crocuses and daffodils. It's a time for new suits, new dresses and patent leather shoes. And also a time for chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and colored eggs. As with the Easter Bunny and the holiday itself, the Easter egg symbolizes the Christian holiday of Easter.

From the earliest times, the egg was a symbol of rebirth in most cultures. Eggs were often wrapped in a gold leaf or, if you were a peasant, you would color them brightly by boiling them with leaves or petals of a certain flower. Today, children hunt colored eggs and place them in Easter baskets along with the modern version of real Easter eggs - those made of plastic or chocolate candy.

Last Sunday, the Fil-American Association hosted a modern-day Easter Egg Hunt at Zukeran Elementary School at Camp Foster, in what turned out to be a great day of fun and games for all those who participated. What a delight it was to watch all the kids scurry around searching for thousands of eggs, some of which contained prizes.

Ronald Salonga, the association's newly elected president, was very appreciative of the many members, friends, and children for participating in this special event. He also invites everyone to attend the Induction Ball on April 10, 1999 at Club Chesty, Camp Foster. Tickets are $20 per person. The attire is formal and sorry no children please.
