And they’re off!

The stampede was on with the start of the annual Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt Saturday at Memorial Park in Hillsboro. With more than 240 children in the hunt, organizers said this was the second year in a row for record participation. An added bonus this year was an appearance by the Easter Bunny, who was more than happy to pose with children of all ages while parents took photos. Each year, said Clint Seibel, one of the event coordinators, local businesses make it possible for the Kiwanis Club to distribute baskets of treats for the children. ?Without the help of these businesses, we couldn?t do this,? he said.
