An egg-citing time

Here one moment and gone the next.

That’s the best way to explain the lightning speed at which older kids find eggs at an Easter egg hunt. For the younger ones, not so much.

The 10th annual Easter egg hunt at the Evergreen Elks Lodge on Saturday was no exception. About 40 kids ages 8 and older took less than a minute to collect the 500 plastic eggs spread around the lodge’s back patio and place them in baskets. Then it was time to crack open the eggs to find the candy or coins inside.
