The Plaza will be divided into areas for different age groups and helping the children will be members of the Cotati Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event, and by the Cotati Boy Scouts and members of the Ro-Pen-Co Optimist Club’s junior rifle team. Harvey, the Easter Bunny, will be visiting town that day and will be at the hunt to visit with all the good little girls and boys.
