CLEANING UP If these children cleaned their rooms the way they cleaned a Collinsville Park area of 10,000 eggs on Saturday during an annual Easter egg hunt, happy parents would abound.
About 800 children swept through the park area in roughly two minutes, thoroughly cleaning the grounds of hard-boiled eggs and plastic eggs filled with candy.
Identifying the children shown here was impossible as they swept past the camera at an amazing speed.
The annual egg hunt, the Third Annual Lee Factory Outlet 97.9 Oldies, Children's Miracle Network Benefit Easter Egg Hunt, was also sponsored by Rush Foundation Hospital, Meridian Community College, Marvin's, Wal-Mart and Barnhills.
