Following the Easter Bunny
By Shari Harris,
The Easter Bunny hopped through Edgar Springs Sat., April 13, and at 1 p.m., three age groups of children followed the bunny’s path and gathered Easter eggs. What must have taken the Easter Bunny some time to place across the Edgar Springs City Park only took the children minutes to gather.

Volunteers Amanda Melton, Becky Wilson, and Ana Noland had hot dogs, snacks, and drinks waiting for the children. These volunteers, along with Louie Watson, Sarah Fitzgerald, Ronda Chapman, and the Edgar Springs Dollar General were responsible for making this year’s Easter egg hunt possible.

This reporter followed the bunny’s tracks to Licking and caught up with the Easter Bunny at the Old City Park, greeting children before the 2 p.m. Easter egg hunt. Children again were divided into three age groups, and in about one minute, they had gathered over 2,000 eggs. Each child was given a prize ticket, and after the egg gathering, numbers were drawn and prizes were selected by each child. Hickory Manor with the help of Licking Residential Care Center, Three Rivers Hospice, and Hospice Compassus sponsored the egg hunt and the Licking Chamber of Commerce provided gifts for the children.

Smiling, happy children abounded at both city parks, thanks to the generosity of the volunteers and sponsors. It is only fitting during the final day of National Volunteer Week and all year around that the volunteers be recognized for all their efforts.

If you missed the egg hunts, don’t worry. The Easter Bunny will be scattering eggs again in the Old City Park April 20 at 11 a.m., sponsored by SCCC, and at Deer Lick Park April 27 at 8:30 p.m. for a flashlight hunt.
