Operation Egg Drop: Helicopter tosses Easter eggs on field for eager kids
from Colony Courier-Leader
Children screamed as the helicopter twirled around the goal posts and hovered over the football field. This was no Easter bunny. It had pilots for eyes and propeller blades for ears and a tail. But as it dropped thousands of candy-filled eggs for their taking, the kids didn't care how fluffy it was. The chopper spilled the eggs on the grass below, and the waiting children sprinted toward their colorful bounty, baskets in hand. Operation Egg Drop was underway. "Everyone's going through tough times," said Michael Banas, pastor of McKinney's Community Life Church (CLC) and host of the egg drop. "We just wanted to be a blessing to the community."
