Hundreds of kids from 1 to 10 years of age cleaned the middle school athletic field of thousands of plastic eggs in mere minutes Saturday.

Ludolph Field at Grand Coulee Dam Middle School sported about 2,500 colored plastic eggs containing candy or prizes planted there by the Lions Club.

Cordoned off for four age groups, each starting at separate times, the field was cleared of eggs in four minutes.

The 11 a.m. event, which the Lions have been putting on since 1936, was preceded a half hour earlier this year by a well-attended Easter Parade sponsored by the Coulee Medical Center Auxiliary.
