Egg hunting: The Goldendale pool was the place to be Saturday, for the third annual Easter Egg hunt in the water. More than 400 people participated.

More than 400 people participated in the third annual Easter Egg Hunt in the water at the Goldendale swimming pool Saturday.

Children in seven different age groups gathered more than 2000 plastic eggs. All participating children received a goody bag filled with water safety information, activity books, a small bag of candy, and an apple. Each age group had one egg containing a special marble. The person finding the egg was the “grand prize” winner, and was awarded an Easter basket filled with various swim supplies.

In past years, a rock or gravel was placed in each of the plastic eggs to make them sink, but often the eggs would come open and rocks would end up at the bottom of the pool. This year, the Goldendale United Methodist Women’s group (UMW), offered to help. Riley Brothers donated appropriately sized river rocks and the UMW stuffed the eggs with a rock, and glued them shut. It fixed the problem and there was no gravel or rocks to retrieve at the end of the hunt.
