Egg hunt for visually impaired children


Children with impaired vision will have the chance to participate in an Easter egg hunt today.

They can hunt for 100 eggs that emit a beeping sound at Bayville Farms Park this afternoon, according to a news release from the police department. The plastic eggs can then be traded for a treat.

The event will start at 3 p.m. at Shelter #1 and continue until 5 p.m., according to the release. The park is located at 4132 First Court Road.

The International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators and the Hampton Roads Regional Metropolitan Bomb Squad are hosting the event in support of the Hampton Roads Chapter of the Virginia Association of Parents of the Vision Impaired, according to the release.

To participate, call Irene Conlin of the parents association at (757) 495-8995 or Lee Ann Armbruster at (757) 523-2708. The siblings of children with visual impairments may also participate.
