With ideal weather and 7,000 Easter eggs at stake Saturday morning in Greencastle's Robe-Ann Park, hundreds of youngsters turned out for the annual egg hunt. Youngsters in the group of one- and two-year-olds (at left) on the grassy area in front of the bandshell slowly get the hang of things as parents point and coax their children to grab the brightly colored plastic eggs.
Winners of the bicycles donated by Headley Hardware are lucky Easter egg hunters (front, from left) Pyper Taylor, 10-year-old daughter of Jody Query and Nat Taylor, Greencastle; Promise Williams, seven-year-old daughter of Jason Williams and Jessica Williamson, Greencastle; Levi Smiley, six-year-old son of Richard and Sandra Smiley, Greencastle; and Nevaeh Hillenburg, four-year-old daughter of Melissa Buis, Greencastle. Congratulating the winners (back, from left) are Park Director Rod Weinschenk, the Easter Bunny and Nathan Guffey of Headley Hardware.
Checking out their spoils of victory in the shade of a big Robe-Ann Park tree in the moments following Saturday's annual Easter egg hunt are (from let) Kenneth Crowe, 7; Peyton Crickmore, 8; Kolby Crist, 9, and Cameron Crickmore, 9. More than 7,000 plastic eggs, filled with prizes or candy and scattered around the park in five separate hunting areas, were gone in less than five minutes at the annual free event sponsored by the Greencastle Parks and Recreation Department.
