From 11 a.m.-1 p.m., on March 31, the Alabama Association for Parents of Visually Impaired Children, with the support of North Shelby Baptist Church, will hold our 11th annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt.
Members of the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators (IABTI) construct electronic beeping Easter eggs which are used at Easter egg hunts around the southeast. IABTI has donated both the funds and the expertise the last six years for the construction of these eggs.
These eggs are also used year round by orientation and mobility teachers to teach the visually impaired children these skills.
The project was adopted by the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators five years ago and named for the daughter of David Hyche, Rachel, who was the inspiration for the event.
“These events are being held around the country now and the model for this was all developed here by us,” explains Hyche. “The partnership with IABTI is crucial because the components are very expensive.”
