Special prize eggs bring smiles to winners
MARY TOBIA/TIMES NEWS
Eight-year-old best friends Casi Papay and Emily Recker, both of Palmerton, were lucky enough to find special eggs during the Palmerton Memorial Park Easter Egg. Casi won a Slip and Slide and Emily won a Whamo Track Ball set. The egg hunt was divided into five divisions from 0- 10 year old. There were ten lucky prizewinners in each group. The egg hunt was centered around the grove at the Memorial Park in Palmerton. "It just keeps getting bigger and bigger each year," said Jane Stroup, member of the Pool Pals. A raffle for adults was held in conjunction with the egg hunt. Twelve lucky winners were drawn to win prizes such as 2010 season pool passes to a variety of Easter items. The Pool Pals have sponsored this very popular annual event since 1997.
