Time to get outside and enjoy. Spring is here.
The flowers and trees are blooming and the earth is once again new. We always enjoy spring so much and look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. We especially enjoy the children and seeing the excitement on their faces. It is amazing to see the friendships that are formed here with our annual Wyndham visitors. March 31 was our annual Easter Celebration and Egg Hunt at Woodland Mead Park and it was wonderful! We had so many people and families. Community organizations and churches helped us by providing game booths and prizes for the kids. Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church came and cooked awesome hot dogs while the Fire Department provided free fire truck rides for the kids. Recreation provided free mini-golf for kids and special prices for everyone else.
