Our seniors did a leisurely stroll during the .5K this weekend. Apparently they weren't concerned that we'd run out of donuts! Kate seemed excited, and Vince? Well, he apparently got overheated just a bit. We aren't sure if he made it to the end, but we know that Bandit and Carla did! Thanks to all those who turned out on a beautiful Saturday for the event. We live in such a great community! ... See MoreSee Less

By all means, still follow the clues! And yes, we'll make sure something is there for you to find!

Can we still try to follow the clues? Will there e some marker to say we’ve gotten there?

Remaining clues: The egg you’ve been hunting, where could it be? On a bridge, or a sign, or a rock, or a tree? Stay on public property my dear girls and boys Though earplugs might help, to drown out the noise.

On top of the egg is a big noisy beast It groans and complains, when you touch it at least. Sometimes though, it sits, quiet, calm as can be Sometimes it’s cranky, but it wouldn’t hurt a flea.

It likes where it sits, this beast in K-town and doesn’t mind a bit when folks come around Just one little push is all that’s required It was born in 99 and it just a bit tired.

You won’t have to move it or struggle or plead Just come face to face with it, down on your knees You won’t have to barter, cry, scream or beg Just tickle its belly and you’ll find the egg!

Good Luck!!!!
