The White House Egg Roll is coming to Independence! Since 1878 American Presidents and their families have commemorated Easter by hosting an egg roll on the South Lawn of the White House. This year the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum will bring the tradition home to the heartland. In addition to the White House-style Egg Roll on our own South Lawn, there will also be an Egg Hunt for kids 12 and under, and "Story time on the Steps" with famous faces from around town. Rumor is that the Easter Bunny will be stopping by to join the family fun too!
