It’s time again for the annual Greater Smithfield Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg hunt. Plastic eggs filled with candy and prizes are hidden throughout Mack Park (or the Rec Center if weather is bad). It’s fun for children of all ages. The hunt begins at 9 AM sharp (or 9:30 AM at the Rec Center). The egg hunt is very popular, everyone has a great time, but it’s over fast so come early and be patient.

The Night of Giving was a sellout crowd this year with 214 people attending. We had to add a silent auction this year because of all the generous donations. There were 25 items up for silent auction plus all the trees and gifts donated for the live auction. This year Jared Parker and his dad Lane Parker kept everyone on their toes as the bids were flying. The Parker’s donated their services as well.
SMITHFIELD — Casey’s Barber Shop has been a fixture on Main Street since 1973, but the barber is not named Casey. Seventy-seven-year-old Kendall Corbridge is the longtime owner of Casey’s Barber Shop. Corbridge has gone by Casey since he was young. He is a proud St. Louis Cardinals fan, but he is not a fan of the Beatles.
The parking lot was full Saturday morning, cars backed down every road. Volunteers scattered candy and eggs across the grass methodically as families exited their vehicles and gathered in the center of Mack Park.

Ever wonder about the castle-like building south of town? The one with all the windows, parapets and even a few fountains? It’s the new Castle Manor reception center built by Alan Elder. “We had actually been planning on doing this for about eighteen years,” said Elder at the open house held in January. “My wife went to Europe about ten years ago and she took pictures of all the castles. We have slowly been drawing plans and coming up with ideas until we finally got it.”
Tickets are still available for the Night of Giving. The 3rd annual benefit starts with a prime rib dinner by Culinary Concepts followed by a Christmas tree auction of trees decorated by local businesses. The Greater Smithfield Chamber of Commerce reports that last year $12,000 were raised to help buy toys, food and some clothing for families in need.
