With snow in the forecast and spring not even started, it’s hard to think about Easter. Yet, with many families getting ready to head out of town this weekend for Spring break, a couple of local neighborhoods already hosted their annual egg hunts.
Waynewood held its hunt on Saturday, and while it was a little chilly, the sun was shining and there was no snow or rain. Children enjoyed visits with the Easter Bunny and Winnie the Pooh, games, face painting and cupcake decorating. Hunts were held in a few different age ranges and there were plenty of eggs and other goodies for the children.
Wessynton held its hunt the following day and Barbara Baker said, “Despite the dismal forecast for Sunday, March 13, 2005, we had beautiful sunshine, a balmy 55 degrees and a splendid turnout of about 45 Wessynton children, grandchildren and friends outside the pool-commons. Neighbors donated baked goods and two dozen eggs per household. The social committee collected and hid them for the afternoon hunt. Afterwards, the kids gathered 'round bowls of dye to make their treasures colorful. And then Old Mine Ranch brought a petting zoo and a pony for riding.”
