Tri-County Park was teaming with children on Saturday morning as the Chamber of Commerce, partnering with United Credit Union, kicked off their annual Easter Egg Hunt for 2022. Children were divided into different age groups as they went on their search for the eggs. One lucky egg hunter, Amere Eoff, found the only golden egg that had been placed in the park. The egg contained a $20 cash prize, which she said she planned to use for the purchase of a new baby doll. Chamber President Charla Smith stated that there was a good turnout.
“This has been well attended today,” said Smith. “We have placed close to 2,000 eggs in the park. The residents at the nursing home did a great job of putting the candy in the eggs for us,” she added. A line was formed to meet the Easter bunny after the bulk of the eggs had been gathered.
