Community Egg Hunt happens March 30

The annual Community Easter Egg Hunt held each year March 30 at Jackson Park is going to bigger and better than ever, according to organizer Jeff Mueller, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church.

“We will be hiding over 7,000 plastic eggs this year,” Mueller said.

Every child ages 1-10 will receive an Easter goodie bag filled with candy, prizes, stickers and activity booklets. The Easter Bunny will be ready for hugs and photos with the kids.

There will also be special entertainment, music and extra surprises such as a possible visit from the “Easter Panda” starting at 10 a.m. up to the egg hunt, which will start at exactly 11 a.m.

Rain or shine, the Easter Egg Hunt will happen.

The community is also invited to help the sponsoring churches stuff more than 800 Easter goodie bags with candy, prizes, stickers and booklets on March 27 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Ninth and State streets, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

An annual children’s safety fair will go from 10 a.m. to noon at Jackson Park.

Community safety organizations have been invited to attend the egg hunt and safety fair.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
