Pocomoke City Police Dept.
Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday, April 19, 2014
The Easter Bunny hopped his way down the bunny trail and into Cypress Park last Saturday afternoon and into a crowd of anxious children of all ages.
The Easter Egg Hunt began at noon under cool but sunny skies. Clad in jackets and sweaters with Easter baskets in hand each child scrambled to find the eggs carefully hidden by the Chief himself and others in the department.
According to Pocomoke City Police Chief Kelvin Sewell this years annual hunt brought between 100 and 125 youngsters. This was the highest turnout since 2009.
Prize baskets- There were 12 winners from the egg hunt, each receiving a prize basket loaded with candy!

Hunting Easter eggs can be hard and exhausting work. Afterwards the guests were treated to a lunch of hotdogs, French fries and a drink. Egg hunt and picnic in Cypress Park- what a perfect way to spend the day!

Future police officer? Officer Horseman seems to have made a friend and let him experience what it might be like to be a police officer.
Children's events and "hands on" experiences are very important for the youth of today. So many of the children in today's society only see the bad side of the law and never get the chance to fully understand that the police are their friends.
Pocomoke City Police Department is very conscious about the youth in Pocomoke City and also provide other sponsored events for the young.
