Since Bunceton was not able to hold its community Easter egg hunt, Murl Jones came up with an idea to have anyone who wanted to participate to make an Easter egg out of whatever they wanted and hang it in the window.


Residents and businesses alike got involved. Families then drove around and try to find the eggs. Kids got involved and they made some too.


The eggs were hung on Good Friday so people had the entire weekend to hunt.


Dawn Kuster went a bit further and covered her front yard with Easter eggs for everyone to guess how many there were. The winners were posted on Facebook Sunday afternoon.


The most unique Easter egg winners were Gina Weber and Leta Jean Hein. AJ and Rita McCart were most creative. David and Aletha Knipp family had most colorful. Honorable mention awards were given to Justin Hein for most Bunceton pride and Brian and Debbie Emde's for most incorporation of natural beauty.


Debby Shipe correctly guessed the number of eggs in Kuster's yard at 80.


The idea from Jones may become an annual tradition.


Adam Pfeiffer received yard of the month for April.


The Bunceton Easter Bunny also known as Daniel Rumans who brought smiles to many children on Easter morning.


The Bunceton Federated Church congregation enjoyed the Easter sermon through Facebook and via email. Weber and Hein played it from their porch Easter morning for most of Bunceton to hear. It was heard as far as six blocks away.
