Oakman to host inaugural Easter egg hunt

OAKMAN — The Town of Oakman will host an inaugural community Easter egg hunt this weekend.

The event will be held Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Old York Farms in Oakman to bring the town and surrounding communities together.

“We’re always open to help do anything to bring the community closer and work with the town, schools and anyone we can,” Old York Farms owner Bull Corry said.

Children of all ages will have the opportunity to enjoy an Easter egg hunt and face painting, while the whole family can partake in provided refreshments.

“It’s not just for the community of Oakman. Anyone who wants to come out and spend the day with us, they’re more than welcome to,” Oakman Mayor Cory Franks said. “It’s just another gesture to bring our community together and be more involved. Old York was gracious enough to join us and wanted to be a part of it as well.”

Children are asked to bring their own Easter basket, and may enter a drawing to win an Easter basket filled with goodies.

Franks said members of the community have come together to organize the event, and he hopes for the town to continue hosting family fun events. One example was Oakman’s first Daddy Daughter Dance, which was held in February and was a great success, he said.

“I think it’s very important to continue to have events in our community so we can come together and everyone can be a part of what we’re trying to do here. I think it helps the attitude of everyone to see that we’re coming together and we’re trying to go in the right direction and do better things for our community and the people in our town,” Franks said.
