In addition to cute, the Easter Bunny is thoughtful. For the youngest of the Easter egg hunters — 1- to 3-year-olds — the eggs were scattered about, but not hidden or hard to see. Saturday’s 3rd annual Community Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Wilmington Public Library drew a large turnout of children and parents.
Lily McCarty, 3, chose to have a face-painter add whiskers to her face at the Community Easter Egg Hunt at the Wilmington Public Library. Lily’s twin sister, Lola McCarty, picked a rainbow image to decorate her face. The face-painter is Alison Dooley, a member of the Wilmington High School Interact Club.
