Easter Bunny hops into area

Seven Easter egg hunts on the next three Saturdays will make area children excited about the upcoming spring holiday. Families should bring cameras and baskets for their loot.

In chronological order:

• The Brookville Kiwanis will have a freewill offering breakfast (with proceeds benefiting Riley Hospital for Children) April 5 at 8:30 a.m. followed by a hunt at 10 a.m. at Brookville Elementary School, reports Secretary Linda Vaughan. Participants should enter from the back side of the building. Children ages 10 and under will be divided into groups to search for about 500 eggs. The Easter Bunny will be on hand to greet the youngsters.

• After a free breakfast with the Easter Bunny at Sunman Community Park at 10:30 a.m. April 12, three consecutive hunts start at 11 a.m. Children by age groups (1-3, 4-6 and 7-10) will look for over 1,500 candy-filled eggs, and prizes will be awarded, reports Pat Scharf of the beautification committee, which sponsors the party with the chamber of commerce, town and Sunman IGA.

• Over 5,000 eggs will be hidden for the 20th annual Ripley County Chamber of Commerce hunt April 12 at 11 a.m. near the Versailles State Park swimming pool. Kids will be grouped by age (1-3, 4-6 and 7-10) to find their surprises. Volunteers are needed and can enlist by contacting executive director Amy Thomas at 812-689-6654 or ripleycc@ripleycountychamber.org.

• A hunt sponsored by the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce and co-hosted by Batesville Young Professionals and the city takes place April 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Liberty Park. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the park pavilion. Children will be divided by age (1-3, 4-6 and 7-9) to search separately for 5,000 eggs. Parents are allowed to accompany the youngest age group, but must not assist their children in picking up eggs. No strollers or babies in arms are allowed during the hunt. After searching is over, each participant will get a surprise. In addition, Kroger employees will give out frisbees, Batesville Soccer Club will distribute balls and Tri-State Artisans will provide face painting. Clowns add to the merriment.
