HAGERSTOWN -- Some children grinned in the presence of the Easter Bunny. Others shied away at first, but were coaxed to sit for a picture.
The Salvation Army invited children, and adults who accompanied them, to lunch and an egg hunt in Hagerstown on Saturday.
This is the third time The Salvation Army had an Easter weekend meal and the first time the Easter Bunny was there, Maj. Robert Lyle said.
Organizers let the rainy weather roll off their backs; they moved the egg hunts inside.
Donations were accepted for the pictures, but weren't required.
Lyle said the Easter meal, like others The Salvation Army serves at holiday times, is a way to focus on the community.
"Next year, we'll build off this," he said.
"I've been coming here since I was an infant," said Tracy Worden, figuring that to be about 30 years.
On Saturday, she was with her husband, Jeff, and children, Ethan, 4, and Maria, 2.
