Close to 100 children searched for 5,000 goody-filled eggs
during the Easter Egg Spectacular hosted April 16 by Dove Mountain
Lutheran Church at Dove Mountain Park. The highlight of the event,
said Pastor Mark Jacobson, was the jelly bean contest, in which
people guessed the number of candies in a jar. While some
youngsters estimated 12 and 25 jelly beans, the winner, whose name
was not announced, came very close by guessing 1,380 pieces. The
actual number was 1,408. In addition to fun activities, the event
also collected food to donate to the Marana Food Bank.
