Last Saturday was the annual Easter egg hunt at Stratford Hall. Each year the local FOP sponsors an egg hunt and grills hot dogs. One family bakes cupcakes and the local grocery stores donate drinks.
The late spring meant the grass was still short and the eggs were easy to find. Once the signal to start was given, it was all over in a matter of minutes. At least it didn't snow on top of the eggs like it did a few years back. THAT was a real challenge.
And then there was an additional hazard ...
For the first year ever, the squirrels got into some of the eggs.
The FOP grilled 500 hot dogs, and one family made 340 cupcakes.
All in all, it was a lovely day.
