Show and Tell Friday
These are pics my 14 year old son took of the Egg-streme Egg Drop our Pinnacle Church did for Easter this year. Instead of an egghunt, we dropped 17,000 plastic eggs filled with candy and prize vouchers out of a helicopter onto the Pisgah High School (my alma mater: Go Bears!) football field. Our local school board let us send flyers home with students to announce it. That morning, we unexpectedly woke up to snow and temps, if I remember, in the 20's and 30's. I expected it to be cancelled, or few to show up in those conditions.
Boy, was I wrong! The first picture is of the stands filled with over a thousand people. I wish I could remember the official turnout, but regardless, God was at work that day!!! The second shot is of a few of the eggs that were age-appropriately placed on the field before the majority was dropped from the chopper.
And yes, ALL those eggs were individually hand-stuffed with treats by Pinnacle staff and volunteers!!!
