Each year for the past 22 years, Nancy Wenger, owner of Huntsville’s The Nutty Chocolatier, has been putting smiles on the faces of kids every Easter Sunday.
Wenger and family members and friends scatter thousands of eggs in the pioneer village at Muskoka Heritage Place so that young ones, from toddlers to 10 year olds, can fill their baskets. Hidden among are a handful of larger golden eggs that can be turned over to Wenger for a prize: a card that can be redeemed for a special treat from the store.
She does it because she loves it. “It’s the best day. The really little ones are so sweet. They love the mud. They love two eggs, that’s all they have to have to be happy,” she says. “(All of the kids) come out with handfuls, and everyone’s happy.”
