Hundreds of children ages twelve and under gathered for Hammond’s Annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning, April 4th. Joining in the fun were Rusty the Railcat, John Basile, Jr., Melissa Volkman, Elmo, Ashley Miles, the Easter bunny, and John Basile, Sr. The hunt, held on Morton Senior High School’s new football filed, was made possible courtesy of Mayor Thomas M. McDermott, Jr., Hammond Parks and Recreation, and the Hammond Parks Foundation. Those participants in each age group who were lucky enough to find golden eggs received beautiful Easter baskets.
