Pre-school children will be grouped in one section of the meadow, and kindergartners and first-graders in another.
In addition to assorted candies and chocolates, the hunt will also feature a number of special eggs to be redeemed for prizes. An appearance by the Easter bunny is also anticipated.
The late and beloved Rockport music teacher Linda Wiedtiz continues to touch students through a music scholarship in her name. A special free concert on Tuesday will be dedicated to her.
Rockport High School music groups, under the direction of Jim Davison, will present a concert dedicated to the Linda Wieditz Memorial Scholarship, featuring the Rockport High School Jazz Ensemble and the Rockport High School Chorus at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Shalin Liu Performance Center.
The concert is free, although donations will be accepted at intermission and in the lobby. A reception will follow the concert on the third floor.
Those not attending who wish to contribute may do so, by mail: The Linda Wieditz Memorial Scholarship, P.O. Box 191, Rockport, MA 01966.

She died in a scuba diving accident in 2003 in the Caribbean. Her colleagues established the scholarship fund in her memory, and every year since 2005, a $1,000 scholarship has been awarded at Rockport High School graduation.
