Exeter area kids didn't let a damp day Saturday to rain on their enthusiasm to hunt eggs at the Exeter Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg hunt at the Exeter-Milligan school.
Due to the weather the hunt was moved indoors, but with over 1,000 stuffed eggs there was fun for everyone. More than fifty children hunted for the eggs in four different age groups.
As in the past, the FCCLA students at the Exeter-Milligan school were onhand to hide the eggs and man the registration tables. This year they also, along with other students, stuffed and counted all of the eggs. At the event they also monitored the egg hunting and helped pass out the door prizes.
This year's door prize winners in the three and under category were Brett Kallhoff and Kaylie Schlueter. In the preschool and Kindergarten section Olivia Poppert, Emma Olsen, Savannah Horne, Ben Bartu, Trenton Vossler and Troy Kallhoff all won goodie bags. In the first and second grade category Jaiden Papik, Cammie Harrison, Brooke Poppert, Jonathen Ostrand, Marshall Severson and Caleb Horne were prize winners. In the third and fourth grade category Vicki Androyna and Joey Bartu won Basketball Easter baskets.
The preschool, Kindergarten, first and second grade door prizes were donated by Jack and Linda Underwood and Bob Mueller.
FCCLA members, along with their sponsor, Mary Lou Vossler, assisting the Exeter Chamber with the project were Meredith Emshoff, Madison Horne, Sierra Christensen, Mariah Bigelow, Maitlyn Thomsen and Toni Bossaller.
