On Saturday morning thousands of pastel plastic eggs were scattered over the lawns, parks and grounds of Ottawa County. By mid-afternoon, most had been harvested by treasurer-seeking children.
In Port Clinton at 10 a.m. over 250 basket and bucket toting youngsters and their entourages fanned out across the courthouse lawn. In a matter of minutes, the lawn was swept clean, and lines gathered for photos with and additional treats from the Easter Bunny. As a bonus, the fire truck that brought the Bunny was available for climbing on and in. The hunt was sponsored by the Port Clinton Recreation Department.
