Volunteer Easter egg hunt gets cancelled and the reason is going to infuriate you

Powered by Topple

A volunteer fire company from Pennsylvania has announced it is canceling its long-held free Easter egg hunt for local kids because the firemen are sick and tired of the parents being so “unruly” and ruining the kids’ fun.

The Norco Fire Company in North Coventry Township took to its Facebook page to announce the cancellation of the annual event, the New York Post reported.

We have received numerous messages regarding our Annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Unfortunately, due to the past years unruly crowds, we will not be having the egg hunt this year.

We know that the majority of our community is not the problem, but we can’t risk injury to children because certain individuals can’t control themselves. We are hoping to try again at some point!

Thank you for your continued support of Norco Fire Company!

 

Deputy Chief Chuck Hipple said they have been putting up with the over competitive and unruly parents for years and that the behavior poses a risk to other kids. Hipple added that it’s not a majority of parents but a few “just can’t seem to let the kids have fun.”

Numerous complaints appeared on the fire company’s Facebook page accusing them of making up and exaggerating allegations against parents. All complaints were dealt with politely and given an application to volunteer.

This whole incident is similar to the over competitive parents often seen in kid’s sports. How many stories have we seen of parents that don’t know how to conduct themselves getting thrown out of games or even arrested for their obscene behavior?

Just last year one Little League team had to erect a sign to remind parents to stop taking their kids’ games so seriously and just relax. The sign reminded parents that “It’s just a game” and “The officials are humans.”

It’s all just more evidence that our society is losing its grip on good behavior. What is heartbreaking is that all this nonsense is ruining our kids’ childhoods.
