The Tuesday, March 26, 1940 edition of Northern Wyoming Daily News reported that 700 children gathered 2,000 candy Easter eggs at the 10th annual American Legion Easter Egg Hunt in Worland. In 1964, the candy eggs numbered 8,000. That was one of the first years then-Legion member Lloyd Seaman reported they did not have an egg-dying party, as it had become difficult to manage the 16 to 18 cases of fresh eggs (a Safeway ad from that same paper notes an egg sale – two dozen for 89 cents). (Northern Wyoming News).

Considering the price of eggs today, how much do you think this event would cost in 2023?

On second thought, let's use plastic eggs. That's easier to set up and far more affordable.

This year, American Legion Post 44 will be hosting their Easter hunt at Newell Sargent Park at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 9. Legion member Terry Bankert noted that 960 plastic eggs along with 30 pounds of Tootsie Rolls, 400 suckers, 40 pounds of saltwater taffy, 1,200 pieces of gum and 1,400 assorted candies have been ordered for the event. There are three age group hunts. (Northern Wyoming News).

There is more than one way to hunt for Easter goodies.

The Ten-Sleep-Hyattville Lions Club will scatter 70 pounds of candy across the football field.

But why run around looking for eggs and other goodies when you can swim?


Sure why not. Let's go as differently as we can.

The Worland Aquatic Center will not be offering its underwater Easter egg as the Worland Jackalope Jump Special Olympics fundraiser.

This year Jackson, Wyoming will lay out 5,000 candy-filled eggs. The square will be divided into four quadrants for four age groups. There is one egg that will have a huge cash prize.

Events like this are not only great fun for the kids, but they each help out local charities.

Wyoming April Blizzard 2023

It was a record breaking snow storm.

Listeners to the Wake Up Wyoming Show with Glenn Woods offered up photos from across Wyoming of the piles of snow around their homes after a spring storm that lasted almost 3 days.

Its funny what snow does when it settles.

But then, after the laughter, comes the work of digging out.

Cheyenne Radio Studios Get Makeover

There are 5 radios stations located in downtown Cheyenne Wyoming. All are owned by Townsquare Meadia.

Technology has changed, and the offices needed a facelift, too.

Lets take a look as the old studios and offices are gutted and the new is built.

My name is Glenn Woods.

News Talk KGAB AM650 is one of the stations in Wyoming that carries my show, Wake Up Wyoming.

I was in town for an event and had to broadcast from the KGAB studios one Friday morning.

Here is what it looked like.
