20-30 Easter Egg Hunt is back

Staff reports

The Carson Valley 20-30 Club and 4-H members will combine efforts to make this year’s Easter one to remember.

The annual 20-30 Easter Egg Hunt returns and will start promptly at 1 p.m. Sunday at Lampe Park in Gardnerville, with eggs and prizes for children up to the age of 8 in different age categories.

Top prizes are $100 savings bonds and big Easter baskets in addition to other prizes.

“This is the second year we have not had the use of Bill Mendes’s old slaughterhouse to dye eggs,” said 20-30 member Dennis McDuffee. “Last year was the first year in a long time the event was not held.”

The club will finish boiling and dyeing eggs at Minden Elementary School, Pinon Hills Elementary, Two Guys from Italy and Sharkey’s in Gardnerville.

“On Wednesday, instead of having our usual meeting, we will all split up and boil and dye the 5,000 eggs that we have purchased at a reduced rate from Scolari’s,” said Dan Evans.

In addition, Harrah’s, Harveys, Lakeside Inn and the Horizon donated 3,600 preboiled eggs. The 4-H groups will also provide eggs for the hunt.

The 4-H Carrot Crunchers Rabbit Club will turn over their 83 dozen eggs for the hunt. The club received 30 dozen eggs from Carson Valley and and 53 dozen dyed and decorated eggs from the Minden-Douglas Elks Lodge.

The club will operate the concession stand and help with games, and the Douglas County Livestock Judging Team will do facepainting.
