Easter Bunny delivers payload of eggs at Pomona State Park

The skies cleared Saturday just in time for the Easter Bunny to make her scheduled stop at Pomona State Park, where a couple hundred kids filled their baskets with a bounty of Easter eggs and goodies. The annual event included an open house at Southwind Shelter House with displays, drawings, vendors and face painting. Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn conducted a Indenti-Kid program, during which DNA was swabbed from about 90 children, whose parents took the samples home to be stored in a freezer. The Friends of Pomona State Park and other sponsors also gave away three bicycles in a drawing for Easter egg hunt participants.
