Easter Egg Roll: 1977

"Kids screamed, bands played and parents beamed. Even grandfathers like Jimmy Carter, who hoisted grandson Jason onto his shoulders, enjoyed the White House Easter egg roll Monday….the President's wife, Rosalynn figured everyone had a good time. The president? "I think he enjoyed it, too," she said while her husband pushed through the crowd shaking hands. Hundreds attended the egg roll on the White House lawn. Parents came with one or two or a dozen kids in tow, to watch their youngsters romp, throw eggs, scuffle, cry, and laugh."

—"Egg Pushers Have Their Day," Daily News Record, Harrisonburg, Virginia, April 12, 1977
