Hop­ping into Easter fun

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?
