THE CHRONOLOGY OF AN EASTER EGG HUNT
2005
Here's a chronological pictorial record of how the Easter Egg hunt evolved.
Margee and Steve Overhiser of Fennville Main Street Market decide to sponsor the event. They consult with the Easter Bunny to come up with a plan to provide candy filled eggs and prizes for children ages 1 through 8. They enlist the aid of the Fennville Chamber of Commerce and the Fennville Lions Club.

The community members at Golden Acres load more than 1500 eggs with candy. . Lions Janet Stappenbeck and Evelyn Charles help set up the course. Chamber member Tom Tucker sets out a marker. Lions Lou and Maureen Sytsma take a photo-op break  as they lay out the eggs
About 30% more attended this year's event than last year. The ideal weather doubtless contributed to the turnout. And now it begins...
...and it continues.

Oh well, she'll grow, but the bear won't. The old "Twister" game goes modern with a CD that plays twisting music. "Maybe this'll take my mind off my missing front teeth." Her mom tells me her daughter is an Elmo fan, so this one hit home.
Is that a drum!?  I wonder if her parents are as pleased as she is? Soccer balls are always a hit. Here's a lucky guy. He got two prize eggs. Good time? Of course we're having a good time. Why do you ask?

The Easter Bunny was on hand to pose for photos with the children before and after the event.
And now, will the REAL Easter Bunny please stand up!
Many thanks to Elice Menear, Bank Manager of the Fennville Chemical Bank and board member of the Fennville Chamber of Commerce.
It's mighty warm inside that Easter Bunny suit under the hot sun on a 70 degree day.
