Interested in learning more about electric vehicles?  The environmental team from St. Andrew’s has organized this special community event.  Several different models will be on display including Tesla, BMW, Chevy Bolt, Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf and others.

You are welcome to take a closer look at the different models to gain a better understanding of the technology.  Test rides will be available to experience how well electric cars perform.  A few electric bicycles will also be available for your review and folks will be on hand to demonstrate how an electric bike handles.

There will be additional information on electric vehicles including financial information on government subsidies and the bottom line on owning an electric car.  Find out how far electric cars can go and where the charging stations are located.

Please join us to get all this timely and environmentally friendly information.

WBNA Easter Egg
Hunt Extravaganza!

Saturday, April 8 | 10:30am | Come Early!
The Homestead at KF Park | 2106 Klattenoff Dr.

Hop into Spring!  Join your friends, neighbors and The Easter Bunny, himself, at the annual Wells Branch Easter Egg Hunt.  “Hunts” will be by age group and begin at 10:30am.  Plan to come early and visit with the Easter Bunny or have fun at our craft table.

Please review the event guidelines below:

This is a community event and ALL Wells Branch residents and their invited guests are welcome.  We want to remind everyone to be respectful and allow all of the children to have enough space and time to safely collect eggs.  No yelling, stealing eggs, reaching under the tape and filling baskets before we start, or busting down the tape and charging ahead before your age group is called.  We need parents to set the example.  We’ve added a second group for the little guys as that had an issue a few years ago.  ONE parent will be allowed in to help with the two youngest age groups (0-18mos & 18mos-3yrs.)  We ask that you respect this restriction.  All other age groups must hunt on their own.  Feel free to coach ahead of time.  There will be 7 minutes between “hunts” to allow parents of multiple children to navigate the crowds.   Please, only allow your children to hunt with their respective age group.  If for some reason, your child ends up without many eggs, please approach any of our WBNA volunteers in bunny ears, they will have extra goodies.

Last, but not least, please remember that this event is put on by volunteers.  We spend weeks getting ready and usually stuff 8,000-10,000 eggs (if you are wondering, yes we recycle those eggs.)  It’s no small feat.  So, if a volunteer asks something of you, please be respectful of their requests.

We love our neighbors and our community.  We’re asking for everyone’s help in advance in creating an enjoyable experience for all involved. Please help us and remember to recycle your eggs before you leave.

We need volunteers to help things run more smoothly.  Anyone whose kids have aged out of the hunt, or older teens who need service hours, we would be so appreciative of your time!  Please contact us for more information at info@wbna.us.  A sign-up genius will be posted as we get closer to the event.

Easter Egg Hunt RULES:

Those of you who’ve attended our hunts in the past know we have very few rules, but we do ask parents to follow those rules and be courteous and respectful of your neighbors so that all of our children may enjoy the hunt.

Age Groups:

*Only 1 parent per child in egg hunting area
*Watch out for potential choking hazards

BE ON TIME (early is better) AS THE “HUNTS” GO QUICKLY • Wait until your age group is called • Check all eggs for prizes • Let a volunteer know if there’s an issue • Recycle your eggs with the WBNA • MOST of ALL, Have FUN!

The Easter Bunny will be available for photos beginning at 10:00am and will stay until everyone has had a chance to talk to him..  Photos will be posted to an album on the WBNA Facebook page or you’re welcome to use your own camera.
