The Exeter Chamber of Commerce once again sponsored a community Easter Egg hunt in Exeter. Saturday afternoon was beautiful and the 1200 eggs were hidden all over the playground and fields at the Exeter-Milligan school. The Exeter-Milligan FCCLA chapter volunteers each year to not only stuff the eggs (this year junior high members of the group took on that task), but they hide the eggs, dress up and help the kids with the hunt. Four different age categories were given prizes, one for a boy and one for a girl. This year’s winners in the three and under category were Layla Whitford and Will Kallhoff, preschool and kindergarten were Sydney Huber and Treton Vossler, first and second grade winners were Morgan White and Ben Bartu and Jaiden Papik won in the third and fourth grade. There were no third and fourth grade boys present so an extra name was drawn from the preschool and kindergarten with Mikey Bartu winning.

Xander Whitford isn't quite sure what he wants to do with the egg he picked up.
Deacon Erdkamp has figured out how to pick up the eggs and has his basket handy to put them in.
