A blustery and cold Saturday seemed to keep a few kiddos home for the 2016 Pelahatchie Easter Egg Hunt. But a few brave ones ventured to Muscadine Park the town’s annual egg hunt.

“Let me call you Sweetheart . . . “ And what better way than with a gift from February’s Business of the Month, Candy’s Florist and Gifts, on Highway in Pelahatchie.
