Kids get their pick of Easter eggs in Anoka

George Green Park in Anoka held its annual Easter egg hunt this past Saturday, April 12, which also included many activities inside the park shelter and visits with the Easter Bunny once they got their pick of the Easter eggs.

The Anoka Women of Today organized the event.

Delilah Wilson, 4, of Coon Rapids arrived just after the Easter Egg hunt started, but other kids were nice enough to give her some of their eggs. Benjamin Lemm, 2, of Blaine, loves the chocolate he found in an Easter egg. Anoka kids Natalie Bradley, 11, Roweyn Bradley, 20 months, and Julia Thies, 13, show off their Easter egg collection. Bailey Day, 2, of Dayton looks over her collection of Easter eggs. George Green Park in Anoka had Easter eggs scattered all over, but it was picked clean in about five minutes. Mason Hoosline, 3, of Anoka, collects Easter eggs as quickly as possible. Mason was with his brother Alex, 8, and his grandmother Patty Hoosline, who recalled how she used to take Mason and Alex’s father Chris to this Easter egg hunt at George Green Park many years ago. The Easter Bunny gives a high-five to Brennen Herberg, 7, of Coon Rapids, while his cousin Ryan Herberg, 8, of Virginia looks on. Also pictured is Camdon Cruitt, 8, of Ramsey. Photos by Eric Hagen Kids lined up on the winding sidewalk through George Green Park in Anoka April 12, waiting for the start of the 10 a.m. Easter egg hunt, which is sponsored by the Anoka Women of Today.

    Would it be to hard for this newspaper to say what the meaning of Easter really is?. We Christians are offended at such a story as this with no meaning of the celebration of the Death and resurrection of Jesus.It is the cornerstone of a Christian life.

      Why do you need the newspaper to tell you the “true” meaning? You have a church for that. This is a simple notice of a community event. Isn’t there something more important to complain about?

        I know the meaning of Christmas(not to sure why you thought I didn’t).They are a Newspaper and last time I checked real journalism was still needed. You say ” Isn’t there something more important to complain about? If I were muslim you wouldn’t be saying that .Easter is the cornerstone of a Christian life.

        • RegularJoe62

          Real journalism? Seriously? It’s a simple notice about an event. What were you expecting? Not every article with the word Easter in it is going to include the story of the resurrection.

          PS: Yes, I’d say exactly the same thing if you were Muslim. If someone posted a notice about an Eid al-Fitr feast I wouldn’t expect it to include anything more than the place, time, etc. I have the whole internet available to inform me of the history of Islam and Christianity. I don’t need a small-town local paper for that.

            “Real journalism? Seriously?” Yes, The basics…….Who?–What?—When?—Where?—and the one that has you in a dither– WHY?. So yes, real journalism.

            What: Easter Egg Hunt
            When: April 12th
            Where: George Green Park
            Why: Children’s entertainment.

            It’s a simple photo piece with cute pictures of some kids. What exactly is missing? You’ve still yet to describe what you think should have been provided that wasn’t in the article. Perhaps you could simply write yourself whatever it is you think the article is missing and post that. Then we all wouldn’t be just guessing at what you’re getting at.

            And I’m not in a dither. You’re the one who raised a complaint about the journalism. I’m just trying to figure out what your complaint is.

          • R.Hill

            Ah…..Please read original comment. Not so sure you would understand it,but try please.It’s there just focus….wait let me make it easy for you…..” the celebration of the Death and resurrection of Jesus.It is the cornerstone of a Christian life.”…I’m thinking you’r e thinking it’s all about an Easter Bunny!.

            I’m reasonably certain that nearly every person who picks up that paper understands the origin of the holiday, but if you feel it’s important to include that information in every single story that includes the word “Easter,” feel free to write the editor and suggest that they include your recommended blurb.

            And please stop speculating about what I might be thinking. You have no clue at all.
