HemlockNews April 2013, Volume XXXVIII, Number 4 Close Enough Far Enough The Perfect Place To Be Official Publication of the HEMLOCK FARMS COMMUNITY • www.hemlockfarms.org Annual Easter Egg Hunt a Huge Success By Mary Beth Connors On a beautiful spring (finally!) Saturday morning, March 30, more than 500 children and adults gathered at the Fawn Hill Family Park to take part in the Annual Easter Egg Hunt. “This was the most attended Easter Egg Hunt we have ever had,” said Recreation Director John Wormuth. Animals from Country Ark Farm, the Easter Bunny, a ride on the Hemlock Farms Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company truck, and prizes were all part of the day. Children ages four, five and six eagerly rush to gather eggs. Each child is hoping to find a golden egg.

All the animals at the event were courtesy of Country Ark Farm. “The fire truck ride was new this year,” said Recreation Director John Wormuth. “We appreciate the HFVF&R Co. making this truck available for the enjoyment of the children.” Community Living: Celebrating 50 years 51 James Busso, left, and Daniel Sarro get a chance to get up close and personal with the Easter Bunny. The lucky children at the table each pick up a special prize for finding a golden egg. There were six golden eggs to be found in each age group.
