Families from around Penobscot County eagerly trudged through the mud and snow in Lee on Sunday for Lee Fire Rescue’s second annual egg hunt. Volunteer first responders and their deputies hid roughly 3,000 plastic eggs filled with candy around the station and at the nearby post office. For organizer Diana White, this was no small task. “It took us a while to find a place to hide them. We ran out of hiding spots, we just kind of put them wherever looked empty,” White said Sunday. But kids quickly scooped up all eggs in sight, some, like brothers Micah and Jonah Peters, even carefully strategizing. “I went all the way down there first because no one was expecting it….so I got a lot of eggs,” Micah said. White said the effort was made possible through donations by the public, which also helped to fill a raffle with a catalogue of items.
