A wintery Easter Egg Hunt

POMEROY–The 11th Annual Spinners Easter Egg Hunt was successfully implemented Saturday, April 16, in spite of the wintery weather conditions.

Many youngsters and their families came out to enjoy the traditional Spinners Easter Egg Hunt, despite the wet and cold weather conditions of the day and experienced over the past week or so. The event had 5,000 hidden eggs between the two locations with plenty of high school student volunteers to help participating hunters.

The event was divided into four age groups: 0-2 years; 3-5 years; 6-8 years; and 9-12 years at two separate locations. The youngest age group met early on at Lybecker Field and the other three at Crystal Springs Golf Course at specific times. The winners for each age group are Tansie for the 0-2 age group; Grace for 3–5-year group; Joshua for the 6 to 8-year age group and Heather for the 9 to 12-year-olds.

There were 92 donations presented to the Spinners which raised over $6,000, a new record, for prizes in addition to funding the event. To keep the chill at bay, Twisted Wire Coffee donated coffee and cocoa.
