Annual Cumberland Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday, April 15th
The City of Cumberland hosted the Annual Cumberland Easter Egg Hunt!
Attendance this year was OUTSTANDING with a record amount of 76 children present!
This year we filled 400 eggs with candy and had 100 candy prizes for playing our newest eddition to our Easter Egg Hunt, yard games!
We had sack races, egg races, and giant bowling!

We want to thank Julie Brown for making the most DELICIOUS cookies for everyone to enjoy!
We also would like to thank the Cumberland Telephone Company, Houghton State Bank, the Cumberland Community Boosters, and the 21st Century Cooperative for their generous donations to make this years’ Easter Egg Hunt the best one yet.
A huge thank you to the adults monitoring the yard games: Emily and Brad Smith, Patrice Thomsen, Ed Dillon, and Matt Thomsen.
And to our wonderful volunteers Misty Nelson and Virginia Coughlin for making the load a little lighter and dedicating their time to the Children of our Community!

Walk Forever Free
Walk Forever Free, led by Barry Jurgensen, made their way through Cumberland on Monday, June 6th, this week. We made them dinner, and listened to their story and exactly what they were raising awareness for.
They are a small group of five walking 500 miles from Nebraska City, NE to Chicago, IL along the underground railroad route to raise awareness for modern day slavery, or human trafficking as many of you may know it. You can see updates of where they are and who they have met here: https://www.facebook.com/Walk-Forever-Free-1641964252724402/
