Courtney Settle found the giant plastic Easter Egg in the first week of the Manteca Bulletin’s Easter Egg Hunt.
She earned $100 for finding the egg on the grounds of the McFall School on Hoyt Lane just north of the Northgate Softball Complex. She located the egg right around noon on Saturday.
There are four additional chances to win $100. Three clues will be printed every Saturday in the Manteca Bulletin.
The three clues this week were:
• To the south there will one day soon be 3,000 of me. This is in reference to the upcoming Manteca Kiwanis free community egg hunt that will take place at Northgate Park softball fields to the south using more than 3,000 plastic Easter eggs filled with candy.
• Schooled in congress. This is a reference to McFall School named in honor of Congressman John McFall who was at one time the second highest ranking Democratic in the House of Representatives. The former Manteca mayor was the son of the first Manteca man killed in World War I for whom the American Legion Post is named. McFall himself served in World War II
• Glee Lane? In German, ja: Hoyt is a German surname meaning “glee.”
