Cold temperatures and gusty winds did not faze the hundreds of children who came out to participate in the annual “Egg-streme” egg hunt hosted by the Mount Sterling Community Center.

Within five minutes of the event’s start at 10:40 a.m. on March 23, the youngsters had swept through the green space like those gusty winds, collecting more than 4,000 brightly colored eggs filled with candy and other goodies.

Megan Barker Witteman, director of the community center, said they were fortunate to team up once again with American Legion Post 417 and Mount Sterling Church of the Nazarene to host the egg hunt.
