Robe-Ann Park Easter Egg Hunt victim of virus

Friday, March 13, 2020

The annual Greencastle Easter Egg Hunt at Robe-Ann Park has been canceled because of the COVID-19 virus.

The egg hunt, which annually draws several hundred people to the park each spring, was slated for Saturday, April 4.

Park Director Rod Weinschenk announced the decision that the egg hunt had been canceled Thursday night at the Greencastle City Council meeting.

“With the virus going around the country right now,” he said, “we decided it would probably be best (to cancel).”

The park director noted that the decision came following Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s announcement earlier this week urging that activities involving more than 250 people be canceled or postponed.
