Hop­ping into Easter fun

Family Sav­ings Credit Union in Rock­mart hosts youth for egg hunt ahead of Easter

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff re­ports

It was all about the fun this week­end for lo­cal youth in the grassy field be­hind Family Sav­ings Credit Union in Rock­mart, where dozens of chil­dren got to gather up eggs dur­ing an open­ing egg hunt for the Easter sea­son.

The bank in­vited out fam­i­lies from the com­mu­nity to come take part and pro­vided around 3,000 Easter eggs ac­cord­ing to branch man­ager Ryan Robinson. They also pro­vided fun and games for youth and opportunit­ies to hang out with the Easter Bunny prior to the start of the April 6 hunt.

Robinson said that he was thank­ful for the pos­i­tive turnout for the

event, and added that in some cases it might be the only opportunit­y for Easter fun for some of Polk County’s youth.

The bank was also joined by WZOT in Rock­mart dur­ing the day.

The open­ing egg hunt of the year at Family Sav­ings Credit Union wasn’t the only one held this week­end. Af­ter press time on Sun­day, the Cedar­town Junior Ser­vice League were set to gather on Sun­day for their an­nual event in Peek Park where hun­dreds of youth get the chance to hunt for eggs across the area.

As Easter draws closer, lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions and churches have a lot planned for the 2019 sea­son. That in­cludes an up­com­ing Brunch with the Bunny event at Anna Kresge Memorial United Methodist Church in Cedar­town, where lo­cal youth can have the opportunit­y to en­joy a morn­ing with bunny-shaped pan­cakes, games and crafts and even can sit down with the Easter Bunny for a por­trait.

It’s just one of many events al­ready avail­able in this week’s com­mu­nity calendar, and many more to come on­line. Want to in­clude your event in the com­ing week’s edi­tion ahead of the holiday dur­ing Holy Week?
