The Grinch Who Stole Easter By Taking Eggs Before Easter Egg Hunt

March 25, 1989

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) _ A grinch stole Easter in this western Colorado city by swiping 300 eggs that had been hidden in three city parks for egg hunts sponsored by two local businesses.

″There were all these little kids and their mothers walking around with empty Easter baskets,″ said Marilynn Sinclair, who took her young nephew to Hawthorne Park Friday morning. ″It was sad.″

The sponsors planned to try again with egg hunts at the same three parks today and Sunday morning.

They set a maximum age limit of 13 and decided to be on the lookout for early egg thieves.
