Ambucs to hold 91st Easter Egg Hunt at 1 p.m. Sunday
Ponca City Now - April 18, 2019 9:41 am
The 91st annual Ambucs Easter Egg Hunt will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Lake Ponca Pageant Area.
This year’s acting chairman is David George, who, in Ambuc tradition, is a new member of the civic organization.
The egg hunt is the oldest Ambuc project, and began in 1928, a year after Ambucs was chartered in Ponca City. It has been held every year since.
The hunt will be divided into five age groups from toddlers to 9-year-olds.
Gary Miles said the local Ambucs are excited about young members joining the club and the opportunity for men and women to serve and meet other civic-minded citizens.
“Many lifelong friendships and business contacts are made in Ambucs and many worthwhile projects have been completed in Ponca City since 1928,” Miles said.
Those projects include Ambuc Park; Ambuc Pool; Motocross; the Ponca City Grand Prix; handicap ramps, and Amtrykes.
The newest club project is the John and Mary Sutton Memorial Pavilion which is under construction next to the Ambuc playground at Lake Ponca. The project will be completed as soon as the final funds are available.
Miles said club members will be next to the playground after the egg hunt to accept tax-deductible contributions for the pavilion.
