Yakima resident hosts 48th Annual Easter Egg Hunt for Deaf, Hard of Hearing children
YAKIMA, Wash.--Several deaf and hard of hearing kids in the valley are celebrating Easter after taking part in a very special tradition.
Nancy Frame from Yakima hosted the 48th Annual Easter Egg Hunt for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children at her home on Thursday.
She works at the Yakima Hearing and Speech Center which helps support the event with Sunnyside Community Hospital.
Kids of all ages got to search for eggs and take part in other Easter activities.
It was also a learning experience for students who're taking sign language classes.
"We also have 31 high school students who are not deaf but who are taking American sign language and they're getting to see deaf people maybe for the first time and they're trying to communicate with them so it's just a wonderful experience," Frame said.
She adds her college sorority alumni chapter also helps her put on the event every year.
