Ashland, Ore. — Easter is just two days away and that means it is crunch time for local groups holding Easter egg hunts.  Volunteers at Southern Oregon University are busy dyeing thousands of eggs for one of the most popular egg hunts in Southern Oregon.

It’s all for the Rotary Club of Ashland’s 56th Annual Easter Egg Hunt.  The 255 dozen eggs were provided by Willamette Egg Farm.  They’re then dyed by Southern Oregon University’s Dining Hall staff.

They’ll be ready just in time for Sunday’s egg hunt.  The event begins at noon in Lithia Park near the tennis courts with a special arrival of the Easter Bunny.  At 1 p.m. sharp the Easter egg hunt will start.

Kids in each of the five age groups will get to search for the eggs, candy and two golden eggs.  The event is open to anyone 0-10 years old.
