Last year the zero-to-four-year-olds cleared the egg field in Frazier Mountain Park in only three minutes. This year the 9th Annual Boys & Girls Club Easter Egg Hunt was over in just 37 seconds.

Those who arrived a few seconds after 11 a.m. saw nothing but green grass on the course and the back ends of boys and girls flooding to toy boxes and the hot dog stand.

All of this is made possible each year by dozens of volunteers, organized by Dave da Handyman of the Boys & Girls Club’s Name Your Price Thrift Store in Lebec—which has now expanded to include a second location to help needy families in Bakersfield.
