And by all appearances, it looked as though a good time was had by all! Regina Bentle and her team from the Conneautville Church of Christ, has enjoyed putting this community event together for four years. On Wednesday, before the hunt, over twenty-five people gathered at the church to stuff 1,800 eggs with candy, prize winning numbers, and categorize and assemble 129 prizes. Saturday, April 7, twenty-five workers organized 45 preschoolers, 50 kindergarten through second graders, and forty third through sixth graders into Easter egg hunters. A total of 135 hunters scattered throughout the park to collect their designated number of eggs. It was heartwarming to watch and although the actual egg hunting is over quickly, parents and grandparents – with coffee in hand – enjoyed watching this colorful and fun community building experience.
