Hunting Eggs In The Rain

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

There were Easter Egg hunts all over on Saturday--and many of them had to be moved indoors.  The 72nd annual Lincolnton Easter Egg Hunt almost got underway before the rain came...almost.  The hunt was scheduled for 10 AM, but preliminary activities and games came first, and just as the hunt started, it started to rain.

Spirits of the egg hunters--ranging in age from under two to nine years old--were not dampened.  The Easter Bunny was there--along with a panda and McGruff, the crime-fighting dog. Kids got a book from the Gaston-Lincoln Partnership for Children and signed up to receive a book in the mail from the Lincoln County Library's Dolly Parton Imagination Library.  

The Egg Hunt was started at the old City Park on N. Aspen Street in Lincolton many years ago by Lincolnton Recreation Director Betty Ross, for whom the park on S. Madison St. is named.  Had she been born today, Betty (Gabriel) Ross would almost certainly have been a professional athlete.  She excelled (as did her brothers) at every sport she attempted.  Instead, she came back to her hometown and was almost single-handedly responsible for the growth of the local recreation program.
