POMEROY–The 11th Annual Spinners Easter Egg Hunt held at the Lybecker Field and Crystal Springs Golf Course was accompanied with wonderful weather.

Families with youngsters ages 0-12 years of age gathered for an egg hunt divided into four heats based on age and distancing requirements. Children ages 0-2 years old met at Lybecker Field, and young people ages 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 spaced out at the Crystal Springs Golf Course.

"It should be fun, seeing the kids run around," said Keighan Gerking, one of the 24 high school students who volunteered to place prizes, check in families, and guide the excited kids.

"Everything Spinners does is aimed at giving back to the community," said Spinners President Tanner Cranor. "The 12 and under age group, this is their thing. This is our event for them."

Spinners received donations for this event ranging from $10-500 from businesses and people here and Lewiston/Clarkston Valley area which purchased the eggs, candy, prizes, and the grand prize bicycle for each age group. "We try to focus our prizes on outside games, to keep kids outside," said Cranor.

The prizes included Frisbees, balls, scooters and hula hoops, as well as badminton and bowling sets. Cranor would like acknowledge the Garfield Public Health Department, Spinners members and families, and high school volunteers for their generous help and presence to make this a memorable event.
