On March 24th, 2018, FIRST 5125 Hawks On The Horizon volunteered to help our school’s Parent Teacher Organization to host an Easter Egg Hunt! The hunt consisted of 2 groups, one group was for kindergarten through second grade and the other group was for third through fifth grade. All the children had fun collecting Easter eggs from the floor and finding out who got the secret egg. During the Easter egg hunt, we also had a bouncy house where kids had fun jumping around while waiting for the next Easter egg hunt. The winner of the Easter egg hunt took a picture with the Easter bunny!
Hawks On The Horizon set up a concessions stand full of snacks that kids would love to buy! Besides snacks, we also sold tickets for anyone who wanted to buy pancakes or hot chocolate. After buying the ticket, they would go outside the gym to find themselves in the area where pancakes are sold. Volunteers from Hawks On The Horizon helped make the pancakes and hot chocolate. After receiving your pancake, you can personally customize your toppings for it. Overall, unfortunately, this was our first event where we lost profit. We have learned that it is more reasonable to buy less and run out of concessions, than it is to buy more and have left over and have our profit diminished.
