To the editor:
Wow! Could it have been any sunnier for our first-ever Easter egg hunt? We had a fantastic turnout of children, some dressed in Easter finery with matching baskets, others clutching plastic bags, all of them dancing around in anticipation of the 2:30 hunt start time.
Our volunteers had a tough time excluding parents from the grounds, so we’ll have to work on that next year. Maybe we need to corral them all in the arena while the kids play hide ‘n seek?
Thanks so much to Deer Lagoon Grange members for stuffing the eggs, our great volunteers for hiding all the treats and stewarding the area, and our partners — the Star Store for providing 3,000 plastic eggs, and Whidbey Island Bank for the treats to fill them!
Now that the inaugural year was a success, we hope that all those who attended plan to make this part of their Easter celebration for years to come.
