 ROSCOE – Traditionally, Easter Egg Hunts involve children collecting as many Easter eggs as they can fit in their baskets. The annual event at Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in Roscoe did things a little different this year. On Saturday, April 4, volunteers colored, numbered and distributed 450 eggs around the church property.

Numbered tickets were purchased for $2 each. Children then searched the lawn and grounds in pursuit of eggs with corresponding numbers. A few special gold and silver eggs were especially hard to find.

After finding their eggs, each child wa s awarded an Easter basket containing pencils, small toys and candy.

Mariner Ship Troop 361, a high adventure Girl Scout Troop, hosted the fundraiser. Proceeds will be used to support the Christian Children’s Fund. Mariner Ship Troop is made up of girls 13 through 18 years of age from throughout northern Illinois.

Cupcakes, pastries, bars and bread were also available for purchase in the church narthex.
