Hunting for eggs or cars? Weekend full of options

By Rita Howell

A basketful of opportunities has been delivered for this weekend in Panola County, including a sunny forecast to ensure nobody’s eggs get wet.

Today a community Easter Egg Hunt is planned at Trussell Park from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The event is hosted by the Finch-Henry Job Corps Center and volunteers from Greek service organizations. There will be games and activities for the kids.
