Easter Egg hunts went on in spite of a rainy Easter Sunday. At St. James Episcopal on Seven Locks Road, the eggs were hidden in the church basement. A few years ago, they tried to hold the egg hunt outside during poor weather, but the rain damaged some of the bags. ‘We remember that year,” said Debbie Hokanson, Christian Education director for the church.
The eggs, Hokanson said, represent new life which is representative of Jesus’ rising from the dead. “In the spring it also new life that’s growing,” Hokanson said, “and He gave us new life by rising.”
While the children enjoyed hunting for the little treasures, some enjoyed just after the hunt ended. “Then I could eat them and play with the toys I found,” said Payton Gowen, 7.
