Sheriff’s Office holds annual community Easter Egg Hunt

(Franklin) – A newly refurbished Brush Creek Park played host Saturday morning to a large group of young children as they once again enjoyed the traditional Heard County community Easter Egg Hunt.

The spring weather was perfect for the annual holiday event sponsored each year by Sheriff Ross Henry and the Heard County Sheriff’s Department.

The 2013 version of the hunt featured over 5,000 eggs and treats ensuring that each and every child walked away with a big smile.

Some of the luckiest kids were able to spot the prize eggs which were hidden a little deeper than the others and contained a lucky carrot. The prize eggs were able to be exchanged for Easter baskets, stuffed animals, and and other Easter novelties.

The most exciting moment of the day occurred when the guest of honor, the Easter Bunny, arrived on the hood of a squad car with the sirens blasting. The smaller kids flocked quickly to see their favorite bunny for hugs and pictures.

Sheriff Henry, along with his staff, once again worked very hard to pull everything together for another successful hunt.

“We would like to thank the Lynn Worley, the Pilot’s Club, local businesses, churches, and other citizens who helped to make this another successful holiday treat for the children. I would also like to add a special thanks to Chief Hannah of the Franklin Police Department and Steve Lane for their tremendous help,” said Sheriff Henry.
