Many thanks to Farmers Insurance group, the University Place Fire Department, the March of Dimes and everyone else involved in the 1st Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at Cirque Park Saturday. The weather was beautiful, the Easter Bunny was in perfect form and all the other activities were great.
The Easter Egg hunt was another story. The organizers provided 2,000 eggs to be placed on the field for the 1- to 4-year-old age group egg hunt. When the time came, rather than the joyful scrambling of toddlers trying to fill their baskets, all we had was a crowd of low-class, thoughtless boors running across the field full speed and carrying their kids to as many eggs as fast as they could.
Those 2,000 eggs were scooped up within 60 seconds. We didn’t stay for the 5- to 7-year-old age group for fear of the mob scene that might have been.
If any of those “parents” are reading this, I hope they had fun, and I hope they realize how embarrassed I am to have to call them my neighbors.
