The shift in the polar vortex bringing almost record rains to the San Jacinto Valley during Easter weekend did not deter the Easter Bunny and his friend Lamby from hopping over to a visit with children at Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District’s Diamond Valley Lake Community Park in Hemet.Any child’s disappointment was waived despite very heavy rain and a long wait in their parents’ car that Saturday, March 30 when they each received a portion of the thousands of plastic eggs handed out by smiling Valley-Wide volunteers in front of the park’s Aquatic Center. Due to the rain, the eggs that are traditionally placed in the baseball field were instead handed out by staff. The Easter Bunny and a rare visit by Lamby greeted children, giving out hugs and high-fives.[gallery td_s
