Parks and Recreation egg hunt kicks off Easter weekend in Odessa

The older children in the age 10 range faced a tougher challenge as their eggs, for the first time, were hidden in bushes and behind rocks along the parks walking paths.

In past years, she said, volunteers boiled and dyed 7,000 eggs at the Monterey Youth Center, starting a week before the hunt.

"Some of them are in wheelchairs, some of them can't be very mobile", Dan Cox with Krewe of St. Andrews said.

She also chuckled about what might have been one of their most important roles: "They helped corral the kids, so the little kids don't get run over by the big kids". His son, 16-month-old Dashiell Maranville, was born with two congenital heart defects. "You've got that other egg hunt at 11 o'clock".

Winners of the bicycles in the younger division at the New Haven Easter egg hunt Saturday were Jackson Gerlach, left, and Andrew Johnson. More than 100,000 plastic eggs filled with candy were scattered across the park.

"I am so amazed with the Krewe of St. Andrews".

Those concerns were echoed even after the egg hunt, when Tonn said he got complaints via email and social media.

"I'm glad to be here", she said.

Per the IDPH, synthetic cannabinoids are human-made, mind-altering chemicals that are sprayed on to dried plant material. They are sold for recreational drug use with claims they will provide the user the effects of cannabis.

When the egg hunting was over there were a number of activities for children.

And in Plattsburgh, hundreds of kids raced to pick up as numerous 10,000 Easter eggs strewn around the University of Vermont Health Network, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital as possible.

"It makes you feel good in the heart", Clyde McCoy, leader of the lodge, said of their support.

"All of the prizes were divided equally, and we gave a bike in each age group", he said.

"It's nice to see the kids smile that day".

Lauren Speck, a member of the Kingston Kiwanis who sponsored the egg hunt, said it's consistent with the organization's commitment to children and the community.

"It's a lot of fun" said Peterman.
