Rocklin Fire honors Wal-Mart for help

-A +A
Without the help of the Roseville Wal-Mart, Rocklin’s annual Easter Egg Hunt would be a little less egg-citing. The Rocklin Firefighters’ Association recently honored store manager Emilio Reyes and the Roseville Wal-Mart associates for their assistance with the city of Rocklin’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. Wal-Mart has been supplying the Easter baskets and stuffed Easter bunny prizes for this annual event for more than 18 years, ensuring that there are a significant amount of prizes to give out to the children. Rocklin Fire Lieutenant Ken Whitman, president of the Rocklin Firefighters’ Association, and Fire Chief Bill Mikesell presented Reyes with a plaque thanking the staff of Roseville Wal-Mart for their “continued support of the annual city of Rocklin’s Easter Egg Hunt.” For more than 40 years, the RFA has coordinated the Easter Egg Hunt. Each year more than 5,800 eggs are prepared and placed in specific areas of Johnson-Springview Park. More than 1,200 children and their families attended this year’s Easter Egg Hunt with more than 250 prizes given out to those children who located specially-marked eggs. ~Staff report
