Case-Barlow Farm and the Easter Bunny have a great adventure waiting for you on Saturday, April 16th at 11am at Case-Barlow Farm, 1931 Barlow Road in Hudson. 

 

Children ages 10 and under can hunt for Easter Eggs around the farm’s 5 acres.  Using their own baskets for collection, children can find plastic eggs, then exchange those eggs and receive an awesome treat bag courtesy of Burton D. Morgan Foundation.

The Case-Barlow Farm Easter Egg Hunt is free to the public.  But pre-registration is required to participate, this will save you time at check in and helps CBF plan for the children's treat bags.  It is a farm, and neither the farm members nor the Easter Bunny can change the weather, so please have children dress accordingly.  This may mean boots if it has been raining. 

The hunt will start promptly at 11am, so arrive early enough to be ready for the action.  Toddlers will be invited to hunt first, followed by the older children.  Parents must accompany all children to the event.

Following the hunt, children will have the opportunity to visit with the Easter Bunny and snap a photo if they like.  

And on Saturday, April 16th, don’t forget your Easter Basket to join in the fun.

John entered combat at Utah Beach in July 1944, his unit fought their way across Normandy, Northern France, all the way through Central Europe.  He was with Patton at the Battle of the Bulge, marching 150 miles in 19 days.  Open discussion will follow both presentations.
