Welcome to Friday! Check out these features that we have been reading lately:
This weekend has a few Easter festivities for those who are on the hunt for some eggs.
Make it out to the Oakdale Eggstravaganza, returning Saturday, April 9, after a three-year hiatus due to COVID restrictions. The 27th annual event is moved to the Oakdale Village Park and will still have some seasonal favorites like the Egg Factory, photo opportunities and hunt, which begins at 2 p.m.
Here is a schedule of the events.
Also on Saturday, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce is inviting all children to come and meet the Easter Bunny on the Washington County Courthouse lawn at 1 p.m. for a story time. Every young visitor will receive a special treat.
Wanna fill the whole weekend with Easter eggs? There is another hunt on Sunday, this time in Richview at the village park, beginning at 2 p.m.
Mrs. Kollbaum’s English IV Honors students were given the opportunity on Friday to virtually host Holocaust survivor Irene, or Reni, Butter in the classroom. According to the Facebook post, Irene spent her early teenage years imprisoned in the Nazi concentration camps of Westerbork and Bergen Belsen, and her father, who she considered“her hero and idol,” died from the cruelties of the camp days after he was liberated. She survived along with her mother and brother.
