A neighborhood is more than a collection of homes. It’s where family and friends make memories.
Oh, we’ve all listened to our parents relish trips down memory lane by repeating a childhood story again and again. Predictably, the kids eye roll until they too start to create their own traditions.
This is why CPNO continues to keep legacy events alive. Fall Fest, Candler Park Movie Night and the annual Easter Egg Hunt are memory makers.
So this is a great time to remind everyone to put the 13th annual Easter Egg Hunt on your calendars.
The date is set: Sunday, April 14th at 2 p.m. We understand that no time is best for everyone, but we do what we can to accommodate as many people as possible while tiptoeing around other events.
Children 11 and under are invited to hunt in Candler Park near the pavilion for 3,500 eggs filled with delicious candies. And there will be a few “golden eggs” holding special prizes, too.
I think it’s important to highlight the volunteers who pull off these events: Natalie Anderson, Chris Fitzgerald, Sonya Jacobs, Amy Jensen, Blaire Maclane, Kate and Jay Sandhaus, and Andee Schroeder. Thank you.
Also, good2grow has agreed to set up a tent for free post-hunt drinks. And, in years past, our friends at Candler Park Market generously donate candy. They are such good community partners. Again, thanks.
And, truly, we walk away with fun stories each year after the parent egg-stuffing party that Kate and Jay throw. If you want in, drop them a note for details: email@example.com.
We’re still firming up dates for the Candler Park Movie Night, but we are trying to lock down two movies for spring and two for fall. Keep an eye out here for more details. And we are grateful for neighbor Ann Marra for stepping in to make this happen.
Fall Fest is on the calendar so mark this down: October 5th and 6th. It’ll be here before you know it.
Now, let’s go make some more memories.
