Things are hopping in Harrisburg

The village of Harrisburg was hopping as children throughout the region descended on School Street to participate in the second annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 2. Organized in collaboration between the village, the United Methodist Church and VFW Post 11208, the mission of the event was to elicit smiles and bring joy to the children and their families. Pastor Angie Taylor said they were successful in that regard. “Everyone is having such a good time,” she said. “It’s a wonderful thing to see and to be a part of.” Pictured here (from left to right) having a good time pre-hunt are siblings Ellie and Etta Graves who have just come up with a plan of attack to collect as many candy-filled eggs as possible. They too were successful in their mission, but they did leave plenty of eggs for other attendees to find.
