A good crowd showed up in cooler-than-normal temperatures for Saturday morning’s WHOP’er of an Egg Hunt, where the grand prize winner was an Oak Grove toddler.
Two-year-old Alyssa Ruiz of Oak Grove won the drawing for $98.70. Ruiz was at the hunt with her older sister, aunt and grandmother. Her mother, Alejandrina, is deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division. She is expected to return home in May.
It didn’t take long for the 20,000 eggs to be collected on the various fields for different age groups and the cloudy skies and cool weather didn’t hinder those in attendance from having a good time.
