Egg-citing morning at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center

The Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center’s (6535 Ravenna Ave NE) annual egg hunt was held this morning. With the FANTASTIC weather predicted (and the 2011 Green Lake Spring Egg Hunt canceled due to budget cuts), very high turnout was expected.

Different age groups clustered up before the event, and then proceeded to line the track around the athletic field.

Then, at 10 AM SHARP, a whistle blew. And they were OFF!


I talked after the hunt with Terry Burns, coordinator at the Meadowbrook Community Center. She estimated that about 500 children and adults had attended the event.

Containers labeled like this one were ready after the hunt to receive unloaded plastic eggs and be reused for next year’s event.

I’d say that the field and the playground were picked clean in under two minutes, easy. Way to go, youngin’s!
