Checking out the Easter bunny
The Easter bunny was a popular attraction for children of all ages, including 11-month-old Addison O’Connell, in Spring Valley Sunday afternoon. The annual Easter egg hunt, held at the Evergreens in Spring Valley and sponsored by the Spring Valley Chamber of Commerce, drew several youth to hunt eggs indoors as the weather was still not quite spring-like. The children also got time to visit with the Easter bunny and enjoyed treats at the event. SUBMITTED PHOTO
