COAL GROVE — The goal: Find the golden eggs.

Roughly 60 children ages newborn to 12 years old were at a Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8850-sponsored egg hunt at Paul Porter Park in Coal Grove on Saturday to find eggs containing either candy or money.

“We got golden eggs with $5 in them and 20 other eggs with $1 in them,” Ruth Crawford, president of VFW Post 8850 Ladies Auxiliary, said. “Each of the four age groups has the chance to find a golden egg.”

Belinda Stambaugh, of Ironton, was attending her first egg hunt of the year with grandchildren, Kinsley, 2, and Yuriyah, 2.

“They are loving this,” she said. “They are really excited to open these eggs and get this candy.”

Children were split into age groups of newborn-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 and free food and drinks were offered at the conclusion of the hunt.
