SPRINGFIELD — Area children took part in the Springfield Police Department’s annual Easter Egg Hunt during a warm and sunny day April 12.

The annual event, which took place at Schrop Intermediate School, invited toddlers through those age 9 to bring a basket and search for colorful plastic eggs filled with candy.

Shown below is the yard at Schrop filled with eggs for the event.

Among those collecting eggs was Grant Hurt, 2, of Springfield, shown at right.

Children also got to visit with the Easter Bunny, shown above, arriving by train. Face painting and refreshments also were available.
