The community will have an opportunity next weekend to enjoy a free hamburger or hot dog prepared by sheriff’s staff and their families while the kids hunt plastic Easter eggs filled with candy and donated prizes.
The activities are all part of Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office’s “Meet and Greet and Easter Egg Hunt” Saturday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lot located beside Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, directly behind Alliance Bank’s offices on Rosemont Street.
“On behalf of Sheriff Butch Adams and the staff of the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, we would like to invite the citizens of Hopkins County to this free eventful day of food, fun and entertainment,” said Hopkins County D.A.R.E. Sgt. Brad Cummings, who helps to coordinate the family fun event each year.
Entertainment will be provided by The Gospel Goofs with music by “The C” Dale Cummings.
Kids ages 0-10 years will be able to enjoy hunting for candy-filled Easter eggs donated by local businesses, agencies and individuals for the occasion. The field will be divided into three distinct hunting areas
“Three lanes will be marked off to ensure little ones have a safe and fun opportunity to hunt eggs. There will also be prize eggs throughout the eggs that are hunted,” Cummings noted.
As if that’s not enough to get the youngsters hopping, there will be bounce houses for kids’ enjoyment during the event.
And, the best part of it all is that it’s free. Yep, that’s right – everything from eggs, entertainment and prizes to burgers and dogs will be absolutely free for anyone who cares to stop by and take advantage of it.
“It’s going to be a relaxed atmosphere, where people can bring their family and get to know us a little better, who we are, for us to get to know the community better — a fun, relaxed meeting instead of during situations we are called out to, as is often the case. It lets them see we’re just people too. Our families will be there too,” Cummings said.
