How long does it take to find 2,400 eggs? Not long

MARION — Marion students were given the chance to put a sweet finish on a school day with an after school Easter egg hunt at Marion Village Estates on April 11. 

The AnchOR school group hosted the the egg hunt for the third year this year along with a variety of community sponsors, including Saltworks Marine and the Marion Police Brotherhood in Marion, Isabelle's in Mattapoisett, Texas Roadhouse in Dartmouth and the Old Rochester Regional AmbassadOR Club.

Lisa Horan, one of the founders of AnchOR, said that last year the group hid 1,000 eggs. This year there were 2,400 eggs. 

“Students from the AmbassadORs club filled the eggs and came out early to hide them. They spent a lot of time on this,” Horan said. She also said that teachers in the mentoring past the first year group, which requires 50 hours of mentoring in a teacher’s second or third year on the job, also helped out at the event. 

Though kids might not appreciate the effort behind the egg hunt, many were thrilled with the results. 

“Look, my brother got me some eggs!” one little boy exclaimed, after his mother showed him some eggs cleverly tucked away in his baby brother’s stroller.
