Easter egg hunt at Deer Harbor

The Deer Harbor Women’s Auxiliary invites the children (and parents) of Orcas Island to an Easter Egg Hunt on the lawns of Deer Harbor Inn located at 33 Inn Lane just off Deer Harbor Road.

This year, the event is scheduled on Easter Sunday, April 8 at 2 p.m.

“This long established island tradition bringing smiles to Orcas Island youngsters each year was started in by Craig and Pam Carpenter, Innkeepers of The Deer Harbor Inn in 1982,” say organizers. “This delightful Easter Egg Hunt with water views is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year!”

Auxiliary volunteers will exchange the eggs the children find for candy and other surprises.

The Deer Harbor Inn will provide refreshments for the egg hunters as well as their parents.

One of the missions of the Deer Harbor Women’s Auxiliary is to sponsor events such as this Easter Egg Hunt and Santa’s Ship to provide on-island entertainment for Orcas Island Children.

The Deer Harbor Women’s Auxiliary sponsors a fundraiser each year to support activities such this and to help maintain the historic Deer Harbor Community Club building.  This year’s fundraiser, an Italian themed dinner with entertainment by local talent Sharon Abreu, will take place on Sunday, May 27.
