Plenty of smiles and even some tears signified that it was that time of year again for pictures with the Easter Bunny at Schaeffer’s Harley-Davidson in Orwigsburg.

People of all ages and all over lined up for the chance to get their picture with not only the bunny, but also with a purple Harley-Davidson motorcycle with a sidecar. In just under six hours, hundreds of photos were taken with a total of $1,807 raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. That amount was nearly $250 more than last year.

While waiting for their photos to be processed, attendees enjoyed looking at the bikes on display as well as a playroom upstairs for the younger guests. Outside there were more games including a bouncy house and of course food.

While some were eager for their photo with the large bunny, others were less than thrilled at being close to the creature on the bike. It was the third child into the day that made it very well known that he was not going to be in the photo, even if it became a family photo.

“I won’t be in it,” said the young boy when his family said that they would be in the photo with him.

Others took their photos like old pros as this specific event has become a tradition for the family. Staff and volunteers commented on how much the children have grown from when they first started coming to Schaeffer’s for the photo as tiny babies and were now starting school.

Guests were treated to a unique picture with the Easter Bunny while at the same time helping out a great cause, MDA.

Coming up this Saturday is Schaeffer’s MDA Block Party. For more information visit http://www.schaeffershd.com/.
