I know it seems a bit soon to say it… but Easter is hopping its way here fast! It’s good to plan ahead and see when the Easter Bunny will be making an appearance. Easter is one of my most favorite times of the year for many reasons… from it being a season of great Joy and forgiveness to the simple reasons of blooming flowers and warmer weather. Welcoming spring always makes me look forward to fun festivities like; dying eggs and having a good old fashioned Easter egg hunt! The following is a list of local events and activities you won’t want to miss this Spring 2017 (I will update the list as information comes in):
