Warmer weather brings community activities

It is hard to believe how quickly summer is approaching. An even crazier thought is that Easter is this Sunday.
As we all gather to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, I feel especially blessed to celebrate with my family for the first time in more than two years.
Residents can also celebrate together with the annual Easter egg hunt in Wilmore this Saturday. Hosted by Wilmore’s Park and Recreation, the hunt is for ages newborn to 10, and includes candy and special prizes. The event will begin at 10 a.m. at Centennial Park, located on Kinlaw Drive.
Next weekend is Wilmore’s Coaster Car Derby. From 9:30 to 11 a.m., East Main Street will be shut down for the annual event where home built and kit cars will compete to see who is the fastest. Kids of all ages are sure to enjoy this event with a sport that is nearly 100 years old. The event is free thanks to local sponsorships.
As the weather warms up, Wilmore’s Farmers Market will begin Saturday, May 4, in the city hall parking lot. Residents can shop for fresh local produce from 8 a.m. to noon. The farmer’s market features vegetables, flower bedding plants, perennials, local honey and eggs and freshly-cut floral bouquets.
As school comes to an end and summer activities begin, don’t forget to share your event with your local newspaper in the news briefs. For free, we will print a condensed version of what you have planned for residents in the community offering those who read or publication in print or online the basics ­— who, what, when, why and how.
Whatever you may have going on, don’t forget to share.
Even if we can’t always be there, we love to know what is going on in the local community.
Email us and send pictures of your event to be featured in one of our editions. We love to hear from you.
