Egg My Yard fundraiser to benefit Gateway Services

Order deadline is March 27

Order candy-filled eggs through Gateway Services Inc. to be scattered around your yard in time for Easter morning fun.

Egg delivery will begin at dark (about 8 p.m.) and will continue until all eggs are delivered (last year, it was about 4 a.m.)

Several options are available. Twenty-five eggs are available for $20, 50 eggs for $37.50, 75 eggs for $52.50 and 100 eggs for $65. There is an option to buy more than 100 eggs with a cost savings.

All deliveries include a letter from E. Bunny. For an additional $5, a personalized egg-shaped 12-by-9.5-inch corrugated plastic sign is available; it includes a golden egg filled with trinkets. This year, four of the gold eggs will contain a short note with a special email address for E. Bunny.

If your child receives one, follow the instructions to receive one of the gift baskets. A treat-filled egg for the family dog or cat can be bought for $5.

Orders are being taken for addresses in Bureau, Marshall and Putnam counties. Delivery also is available within Peru city limits. Pickup is available at the Princeton location and includes a $5 discount.

The order deadline is 4 p.m. March 27. Additional information and an online order form can be found at, or anyone interested can call 815-875-4548, ext. 221. All proceeds will benefit Gateway Services.
