Bagging those eggs is all in the beep


Saraphia Dickenson, 11, of Snohomish, shrieks with joy upon finding a beeping Easter egg before her classmate, Hamoody Jauda Smith, 10, left, during the 36th Annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at the Tukwila Community Center on Saturday. There were two more-traditional egg hunts for sighted and partially sighted children, and then a hunt for special eggs that beep, for children with low vision. The Washington chapter of the CenturyLink Pioneers provided the eggs, which are engineered with electronic circuit boards, batteries and telephone speakers to emit distinctive beeping sounds. Kids could then trade in the beeping eggs for candy-filled ones.


Colton McCurdy, 3, of Puyallup, delights in the beeping sounds of his Easter eggs while his mom, Demarie McCurdy, looks on. The sponsoring CenturyLink Pioneers consists of volunteers who are active or retired from the telecommunications industry.
