OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – UPDATE— The Brothers of the Wheel Easter Egg Hunt has been postponed until Saturday, April 16 at 12 to 2 p.m.
The Brothers of the Wheel Motorcycle Club’s East Plateau Chapter is hosting their first-ever Easter egg hunt for the kids around the community.
They will have over 3,000 plastic eggs filled with candy, along with golden prize eggs. In addition, the club will be giving away thousands of dollars in prizes.
Several area businesses pitched in to help contribute prizes and candy. The club’s president Jason Pemberton says the inspiration behind hosting the egg hunt is simply to put smiles on the kid’s faces.
“It’s to give back to the community and the kids in the community because they’re what matters, and making them happy and stuff, and we’re a family-oriented motorcycle club, so when it comes to giving back to the kids and everything we’re all for it,” says Pemberton.
The egg hunt has been moved to Saturday, April 16 from 12-2 p.m. at Oak Hill City Park. Free photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny will also be available at the event.
