Hunt a success despite weather

A two-hour weather delay for the start of the Oregon Park District’s annual Easter Egg Hunt didn’t diminish the enthusiasm of any of its participants.

Pre K through fourth graders scoped out the treats at Oregon Park West and were ready to fill their baskets when the Easter Bunny started the event at noon instead of its usual 10 a.m.

Organizers posptoned the popular event two hours giving Mother Nature time to clear the skies of rain and bring in some sunshine.

Saturday’s event followed a Friday night “Flashlight Hunt” for older kids.

“The Oregon Park District thanks the 2018 Easter Egg Hunt sponsors and donors,” said event coordinator Debbie Leffelmann. “These events would have been possible without the support of the following businesses: Oregon Casey’s, McDonald’s, Harvard State Bank, Central Bank, Stillman Bank, Oregon Snyders/Ace and Subway.”

Leffelmann also thanked the many volunteers who spent time filling eggs or working the events.

“More than 3,000 eggs were stuffed and 21 volunteers helped at the events,” she said. “Thank you to everyone involved for your commitment to the Park District and our community.”
