Sher­iff, Easter Bunny visit area hos­pi­tals

Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff Gary Hof­mann and the Easter Bunny made their an­nual visit to area hos­pi­tals on Thurs­day, March 24. This year Tal­bot County Sher­iff Joe Gam­ble and Kent County Sher­iff John “Buck” Price joined in to hand­out stuffed bun­nies to kids.

For­tu­nately this year there weren’t many sick kids, so a stop at the Learn­ing Cen­ter at the hospital in Eas­ton was made. Stops were also made to visit staff mem­bers and sev­eral elderly pa­tients.

The Easter Bunny Foun­da­tion is a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion with a mis­sion to pro­vide a per­sonal visit and a toy from the Easter Bunny and the lo­cal sher­iff dur­ing the week of Easter to chil­dren in chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals and pe­di­atric wards.
