Sheamus Pape Salmon and Dylan Coutts
Four-year-olds Sheamus and Dylan stole the show as Sheamus was first to finish and Dylan was the champion by collecting all of the small plastic bags at the Harriers Easter Egg Hunt at Thetis Lake Park today, event #2 of six 40th Anniversary Celebration Events. Both boys received Harriers medals, a large Easter egg and a bunny for their efforts. A total of 23 participants including 14 adults/parents, 5 kids and 4 dogs hiked 3 kilometres with a map searching for 12 mystery locations where the small chocolate eggs were hidden. Being Easter Monday, the park was extremely busy with other visitors and, unfortunately, dogs had chewed and carried away three of the hidden stashes. Quick thinking by Gary fixed the problem by walking ahead of the group and hiding substitute bags before the children arrived so all was good at each location. The hike was a session about searching, sharing and caring focusing on family, friends and fun. Event #3 of the 40th Anniversary Celebrations is the Pilgrimage Run from Thetis Lake to the Prairie Inn Pub, a 13 mile run with honourable entrances at 6 miles and 3 miles for runners and walkers. Mark Sunday, June 3 on your social calendar for the Pilgrimage Run.
