In the span of ten minutes, 20,000 brightly colored eggs vanished from the football field at Veterans Memorial Park as hundreds of happy children dashed across the field to fill their baskets with the Easter treats March 31. This year marks the 32nd annual community egg hunt, this year sponsored by K.A.R.E. for Kids in partnership with Dawson County Parks and Recreation and several local churches. “I always get the question ‘how many kids are here?’ A lot,” K.A.R.E. for Kids President David McKee said on Saturday. “There seems to be more folks this year than in years past.”
