2-year-old Madelyn GeretyIt doesn’t take the older children long to clean the city park of 4,000 plastic eggs filled with candy and prizes at the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Valley Falls. But 2-year-old Madelyn Gerety was in no hurry Saturday afternoon as she took her time to fill her basket with the aid of her uncle, Dalton Morrow. The event, sponsored by the Centenarian Club and Steve’s Thriftway, attracted the usual large crowd and included a coloring contest. The residents of Sunset Haven assist the Centenarians by filling the eggs with candy. Madelyn is the daughter of Trisha and Nick Gerety, Winchester. Photo by Clarke Davis
