Church taking orders for eggs; planning annual spring festival

Mar. 01, 2013 @ 12:20 PM

HURRICANE — Plan now to attend the Annual Spring Festival, sponsored by the United Methodist Women at Forrest Burdette United Methodist Church, 2848 Putnam Ave. in Hurricane, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 23.

This event is a mission project to help support mission outreach throughout West Virginia and around the Hurricane area.

 Handmade, chocolate-dipped Easter eggs have been constructed by at least two generations of ladies of Forrest Burdette since 1969. Friends and neighbors also volunteer in the mixing, molding, dipping and decorating process.

The original flavors were vanilla, chocolate, cherry nut, maple nut, coconut and the all-time favorite, peanut butter. In 1999, the chocolate buttercream was eliminated from the choices. Since that time, 34,404 eggs have been “made with love” during the week before Palm Sunday.

Orders for half-pound eggs for $3.50 can be placed by calling Jan at 304-562-2053 or emailing jrowsey@aol.com. By ordering early, you may request your eggs be dipped in white chocolate, if desired.

Orders will be ready for pick up at the Spring Festival, which will also feature books, crafts, baked good, flavorings, cards and the United Methodist Women’s “famous” hot dogs.
