Children collected lots of chocolate bunnies, eggs and other treats over the weekend with a variety of Easter hunts, including the Iola Kiwanis hunt on the courthouse lawn Saturday and one at the LaHarpe City Park hosted by the LaHarpe PRIDE. The LaHarpe event also gave away cash, bicycles and Easter baskets.
