A hopping Easter weekend awaits

A busy Easter weekend is coming to Emporia.

The first Read to Your Bunny 5-K "Bunny Hop" will start at Riverside School at 8 am Saturday. Organizer Shane Heiman says the event benefits the school and the Read to Your Bunny program, which gives books to parents of kids born at Newman Regional Health.

The last Winter Farmers Market of the 2013-2014 season begins at 10 am, running until noon at the Humanitarian Center. The Farmers Market regular season begins April 26 at the Flint Hills Technical College Sustainability Fair.

Emporia State University has a busy holiday weekend with a home baseball doubleheader against Northwest Missouri at 1 pm, the last home softball doubleheader of the season against Southwest Baptist at 2 pm and the spring football game, also at 2 pm.

Worship services begin Saturday night and continue on Easter itself, and once again KVOE is airing the Messiah Lutheran Church drive-through service at the Lyon County Fairgrounds. Pastor Norbert Tegtmeier says it's a relaxed atmosphere for a church service.
