GEN­TRY — Heavy rains early in the week and the threat of more rain on Satur­day led to the can­cel­la­tion of the an­nual Easter egg hunt in Gen­try which was spon­sored by the Gen­try Cham­ber of Com­merce. In­stead, chil­dren were in­vited to stop by the Gen­try Harps Food Store, where the Cham­ber passed out bags of Easter treats and gave chil­dren a chance to have their pho­tos taken with the Easter Bunny.

The park was soggy early in the week and just dry­ing out, but more rain was in the fore­cast for Satur­day, so the de­ci­sion was made to can­cel the an­nual event and move to the Gen­try Harps store in­stead, said Janie Parks, di­rec­tor of the Gen­try Cham­ber of Com­merce.

And many chil­dren came out to re­ceive a bag of good­ies and to visit with the Easter Bunny while par­ents and friends took pho­tos.

Gen­try High School’s honor so­ci­ety stu­dents as­sisted at the event on Satur­day by pass­ing out the bags of good­ies and mak­ing it pos­si­ble for the Easter Bunny to be on hand for the chil­dren.
