64th annual Lions Easter egg hunt over as soon as it started at West Linn HIgh School football field

TIDINGS PHOTO: VERN UYETAKE - West Linns Julia, left, and Alexandra Bacon, both age 3, eagerly await the start  of the Lions sponsored egg hunt. The West Linn and Riverview Lions clubs delivered again by making hundreds of youngsters happy by hosting the 64th annual Easter Egg Hunt at West Linn High School March 31.

The football field was covered with more than 2,000 plastic eggs filled with candy and chocolate. Earlier in the week, club members had worked into the night to fill each egg. Lion Ron Adams even had the wounds to show that filling plastic eggs isn't what it is cracked up to be.

With a start promptly at 10 a.m., the egg hunt was over by not much past 10:02 a.m. For most of the egg hunters the idea was to run past all the eggs to the other side of the field and then work back to the center. 

And just in case a child wasn't able to secure an egg -- attending your first egg hunt can be somewhat overwhelming and stressful -- members of the Lions club all carried a few spare eggs just in case one needed to magically appear to hopefully avoid a shed tear.

Based on the smiles and filled baskets the 64th annual hunt was a success.
