April at Kirby Pines starts out with a little “fun” as we begin the month celebrating April Fool’s Day. While not everyone appreciates a good joke, laughter is a good way to get out of the winter blahs and certainly a good way to say goodbye to some of the restrictions we have all had to deal with these past twelve months. It is after all the first full month of Spring, and flowers, trees and wildlife are abundant on our sixty park like acres.
The first Sunday of the month is Easter Sunday and Mark Simpson is planning a delicious Easter Brunch for all to enjoy. Along with some traditional breakfast items there will specialized entrees and desserts.
If you’re anxious to get outside and enjoy the Spring weather, our grounds are a perfect place to enjoy a walk with all that is in bloom. Hopefully the end of the prior month provided enough dry days to complete the walking path around the lake; or to take a peek at the numerous raised beds that the Kirby Garden Club have started to cultivate.
Of course, you can also just sit on one of several park benches and enjoy the birds, or feed the fish from the bridge, or swing in the swing house.
April brings to us not only the rebirth of Christ, but also the opportunity to remind ourselves how fortunate we are all to see the light at the end these past twelve months; and to welcome back family group visits and hugs.
Happy Easter everyone!
