Weathersfield Weekly Blog, March 28

Easter Egg Hunt

On Saturday March 31, the town, library, parks and recreation commission (CORRECTION 3/29) and The Weathersfield PTA (thanks for the update Dorianne!) will be hosting an Easter Egg Hunt at Hoisington Field (beside the old Perkinsville Elementary School) on Rte 106 in Perkinsville. The hunt begins at 10 a.m. and will last until all the eggs have been found. There will be a chance to meet the Easter Bunny and there will be separate hunt for toddlers. Hopefully, some of the snow will be melted and the field won't be too muddy. Bring your baskets and probably your garden boots. For more information contact Town Manager Ed Morris at 802-674-2626 or Library Director Mark Richardson at 802-674-2863.

Transfer Station Closed For Easter

Also on Saturday, March 31, you should plan to do all your Transfer Station business because the Transfer Station will be closed on Sunday, April 1 in celebration of Easter. More information about the Transfer Station may be found on the town's website.
