Easter Egg Hunt
By Charlotte L. Glover


April 07, 2008

Dear Sitnews,

I know firsthand how much work go into making successful public events and I am glad that everyone enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt at Ward Lake coordinated by Angie Olson, but I have to express my disappointment at the mess that was left behind.

A week after the hunt my family and I walked around Ward Lake and found hundreds of pieces of broken plastic eggs around the entire Ward Lake trail and I'll bet we were not the first to notice the debris or make an effort to clean up in the days since the hunt. We picked up every piece we could find and came away with pockets stuffed full of debris. I was also dismayed to see plastic eggs floating on the ice in the lake. I'm no wildlife expert, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that wild animals and young children can eat the sharp plastic shards and risk injury.

If the egg hunt is held again next year, please make sure that a cleanup crew is part of the plan.
