A chilly rain did not keep the kids away as Jackson County Sheriff Mike Sharp hosted his Second Annual Sheriff's Easter Egg Hunt. Sheriff Sharp and his special deputized guest, the Easter Bunny, made sure the weather didn't put a damper on the festivities as they greeted eager egg hunters March 27 at Parade Park in Kansas City.
Children were invited to get an up-close look at the Sheriff’s posse on horseback and to explore inside both a patrol car and ambulance. Hot dogs were provided and all were invited to attend this public-outreach event free. Joining Sharp and his deputies were United States Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (Missouri 5th District), Jackson County Legislator Theresa Garaz Ruiz (1st District At-Large) and civic leader Alvin Brooks.
