Funny, I am on the "Twinsburg" Patch and you listed Easter Egg Hunts from Hudson, Kent and Cuyahoga Falls, but no mention of Christ Community Fellowship Church's Hunt in Twinsburg. Our Saturday, 4/7 Easter Egg Hunt was the only one advertised on the Twinsburg Patch event calendar!
Mitch Cooper April 20, 2012 at 09:23 PM
Sorry Pastor Aten, that's my fault. When this was posted I didn't see the event. I'll keep a better eye out in the future. Thanks.
