Watkins hosts Easter egg hunt

This year’s Easter egg hunt in Watkins was held at the Lions skating rink. It was a beautiful day for the event, neither too warm or too cold, and all the W-IMG 8222children had lots of fun. Besides gathering eggs, children also enjoyed popcorn and cotton candy, face painting, and a drawing for prizes afterward. The Lions/Lioness and Riverwood Realty sponsored the event.
