On Saturday, March 30 The Bridge Church at 191 Main Street sponsored an egg drop at the Cooleemee Fire Department.

Hayrides were provided by Josh Ijames while hotdogs, cotton candy, flavored ice, popcorn and water were free – donated by the Bridge.

A food truck served flavored ice cream.

Wrist bands segregated the children’s age groups so the egg drop could be fair and safe.

Paster Justin wore a mic which helped him to manage the large groups. He certainly had a way to get everyone’s attention, this event was definitely not his first rodeo.

The candy-filled plastic eggs were dropped from the Center Fire Department Bucket Truck 13 while the crowd gave a loud shouting countdown.

Faith Ann Schutt was walking toward her mother with a bucket of eggs which had a nice dome on top that was about to flow over the edge.

She happened to pass a younger girl who had a small amount of eggs in her basket. Faith Ann turned around and started putting eggs in the little girl’s basket. Her kindness and compassion wasn’t overlooked. How about Faith leading by example?

The energy that surrounded the event was happiness and.     

A big thank you to all volunteers of the Bridge Church.

This egg drop event was a huge success.
