STEM The town of Stem hosted over 200 people at the Stem Ruritan Club for the annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. The hunt was previously delayed due to inclement weather.

The egg hunt was broken up into four age groups: 0-3, 4-6 and 7-10, and this year there was an 11 and over hunt. Parents spent much of the time shouting instructions or giving directions to the hunters.

“We were very pleased with the turnout for this year’s Easter Egg Hunt,” Stem Mayor Pro Tem Susan Cope said. “The event was bigger and better than last year and I think all who attended had a great time.”

Many of the children appeared excited to see the Easter bunny. The kids crawled up in the bunny’s lap and had their pictures made with it.

Another popular event this year was the Cadbury egg-eating contest. There was also a drawing to give away four Easter baskets to the lucky winners.

“It was wonderful to see the community come together and have so much fun during the Easter holiday,” Stem Mayor Casey Dover said. “The kids had a great time hunting for eggs and playing with the Easter bunny. Overall the event was great. We look forward to hosting the Easter egg hunt next year.”
