Lynden Easter egg hunt boosts Wind Dancer Pony Rescue

WhatsOn Mar 24, 2016 by Brenda Jefferies Flamborough Review

Meet the Easter Bunny and play with ponies while keeping a young girl’s legacy alive during the annual Wind Dancer Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, March 26 at Lee Academy, located at 1978 2nd Concession W. in Lynden.

The event starts at 10 a.m., with candy enthusiasts lining up to begin the hunt at 10:30 a.m.

“The Easter egg hunt is so much fun and allows us to remember each year that many of our biggest supporters are kids,” said Dr. Paula Dupuy, founder of the Sheffield pony rescue.

The program has been rescuing ponies since 2011. It was started as a legacy project in honour of Dupuy’s daughter Isabel, who passed away earlier that year. Wind Dancer was the name of her pony. The annual Easter event raises money for the foundation.

The hunt will be divided into age categories from 2-5, 6-9 and 10-14 years of age. The fun also includes a raffle with the proceeds supporting the care of neglected and unwanted ponies.

As a student of the academy, Dupuy’s daughter is forever immortalized through a special sculpture on the school’s grounds.

“On a spring morning it’s a lovely place to spend time, enjoy the surroundings and support the work we do at the rescue,” said Dupuy.

Children are asked to bring a basket to take part in the Easter fun and there is a $2 entry fee.
