Members of the Community Service Organization at Samford University's Cumberland School of Law will host a spring festival for a group of area children Sunday afternoon, March 30.

About 100 children are expected to enjoy face painting, a treasure hunt, games, and crafts on the Samford campus. The youngsters represent a variety of community organizations, including Children's Village, Salvation Army and Grace House.

Carin Brown, a second-year law student from Niceville, Fla., is coordinator of the afternoon's events.
