Makiya Bellor, 9 months old of Sterling, was a little sleepy eyed as she scoped out the brightly colored Easter eggs at the Deep River Township park. "I had to wake her up from her nap," laughed mom Lisa.

And they're off! As the fire engine roared a starting note, Emily Jenkins raced out into the ball diamond. The Eight year old Sterling native, in pink jacket and black boots, had a great time at the Sterling event.

One of the littlest egg hunters, Jason McConnell of Sterling, gets a hand from mom, Katie Morrow. Although he wasn't sure weather to eat the plastic eggs or put them in the bucket, he sure enjoyed finding the eggs.

LeeRoy Dubey, a Vietnam Veteran from Sterling called out ticket numbers to award prizes after the mad dash for eggs was over. The eight to ten age group he worked with was a fast group of kids, quickly racing from one end of the ball diamond to the other.

A row of bikes and other prizes awaited lucky ticket holders Saturday, April 23 at the Vietnam Veterans twenty-fourth annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Chapter 390 of the Vietnam Veterans of America have been busy playing Easter bunnies, orchestrating their twenty-fourth annual egg hunt for area children. The event, which saw a great turn out, was held Saturday, April 23, at the Deep River Township Park in Sterling. The Veterans provided each child with a goody bag and drew tickets for larger prizes, including huge chocolate bunnies, fishing poles and bicycles. Kids were separated into four age groups: one and two year olds, three and four, five to seven and eight to ten, each group having a separate section of the park to hunt for eggs. No matter which age group they were sorted into, basket toting kids could be seen giggling as they raced to rescue another egg from the playground.
