The Easter Bunny made an early visit to Prairie Acres and Friona Heritage Estates Thursday, April 6. Delighted children hurried to find all the colorful eggs that were dyed, filled and hidden by the residents. The children from Story Time at the Library and Pre-K students enjoyed hunting the eggs. Their baskets were filled to the brim. More Easter egg hunts are planned this weekend at the City Park and First United Methodist Church.
