To the editor,
I read with interest the article about several worthy organizations in Duncan and Marlow holding children’s Easter Egg hunts.
This was of particular interest to me because about thirty years ago my father, Abe Walkingstick, used to organize the Optimists’ Club Easter Egg Hunt. We used to call him the “Easter Bunny.”
Back then, on Saturday night before Easter, my parents would drive all over town to stores that had closed and had left-over Easter candy and toys. I remember our back bedroom was covered, floor to ceiling, with candy for the big egg hunt. Then, on Easter morning, we would “hide” plastic eggs with candy and coupons for prizes. “Hiding” mostly consisted of dropping candy over softball fields.
A grand time was had by all, adults and children alike. I’m glad to see that this tradition goes on and I know that, if he were alive, my father would be first on the sidelines to enjoy the hunt.
