Easter may have been Sunday but there were still plenty of Easter eggs to be found.

Monday the Greenville area Shriners held their annual Easter egg hunt at the Thomas Foreman park. Over a hundred kids were expected to attend. Seventy five of the eggs had the name of a Shriner in them, kids could turn those names in for a dollar. The Shriners operate over 20 burn and orthopedic hospitals across the nation for children free of charge. These hospitals have played a huge part in many kids lives.

After the kids worked up an appetite hunting Easter eggs they were treated to hot dogs and other snacks.
