Thanks to our local businesses and volunteers who helped make the Egg Hunt a fun community event!

The Roslindale Village Main Street's 23rd Annual Egg Hunt was held at Fallon Field on Saturday, April 15th. We were lucky to have a beautiful, sunny spring day! Approximately 1,000 people from in and around Roslindale came to share in the fun of this annual event to welcome spring, hunt for 6,000 treat-filled eggs, visit with the Bunny, and play games.

So many volunteers and local businesses donated time and activities to make the Egg Hunt a fun community event:

  • Thanks to District 5 City Councilor Tim McCarthy for attending the event and leading a countdown to the start of the hunt!
  • Thanks to RVMS volunteer Tom Donahue for helping plan the egg hunt for the past 20 years! 
  • Thanks to RVMS board and committee members for volunteering at the event: Silvana Ragusa, Liz Graham-Meredith, Kate Schlegel, Kelly Ransom, Hilary Sullivan, Meg Vulliez, Erin Doherty, and Anthony Giordano.
  • Thanks to Glenn Williams, "Voice of Roslindale," for loaning his equipment, acting as emcee, and ensuring a fun, smooth event overall!
  • Thanks to Cathy Slade for her role in making the Egg Hunt such a fun event for the kids!
  • Thanks to Josh Wyatt and the group of volunteers from Charles River Church Boston for helping with the event from start to finish, and bringing games and goodies.
