Legion names basket hunt winners

MILO — American Legion Auxiliary Unit 41 of Milo sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 16 at the Veteran’s Memorial Park near the riverfront. 

A total of 31 children joined the fun, hunting for more than 300 eggs. Children were split into two groups, ages 2 to 5 years and ages 6 to 10. 

It took them just about 20 minutes to find all of the eggs. There was one gold egg for each age group and the child who found the gold egg was presented with a filled Easter basket.
