Hunters turned out in large numbers to the Snowflake/Taylor Annual Easter Egg Hunt. They scooped up some 2,100 Easter Eggs along with another 500 prize eggs.  The luckiest hunters drew for the grand prizes in the 1-2 year and 3-4 year old groups and found the grand prize eggs in the K-1st and 2nd-3rd grade groups. There was also drawings for prizes through out the event.  The grand prize winners won Bikes and Easter Baskets.  A very special thanks go out to Ace Hardware for their continued generous contribution to the event.   All of the prizes and much of the cost to run the event was donated by Ace. The eggs were again donated by Ed’s Market.  Ed’s has donated the eggs since the hunt started some 37 years ago.
