Egg hunts and more this week
Rating: 3 / 5 (8 votes)

Hello, everyone. Don't forget to come out with the family for the annual Spring Extravaganza being held at Whispering Pines Park, at 800 S.W. Darwin Blvd., in Port St. Lucie.

Everything begins at 9 a.m., and there will be candy and thousands of eggs spread over four baseball fields. Bring your own Easter basket and get ready to meet the Bunny.

Also, there is a brand-new business in town, and it couldn't open with better timing. Jackson Tax Service just opened its doors at the Shoppes of Victoria Square in Port St. Lucie. That's at the corner of Port St. Lucie Boulevard and Bayshore Boulevard.

A new business means a few more people found employment, and that's another step towards growth and making Port St. Lucie even better. If you get a chance, stop bye and say "Hi" to them. Just tell them the Hometown News sent you.

If you are looking for a good cause to support, consider the Southeast Florida Honor Flight. The community seemed to rally around this cause of letting Port St. Lucie World War II veterans fly for free to Washington D.C. in April. Currently, a signed lithograph of New York Mets third baseman David Wright is being raffled off, with the proceeds going to Honor Flight.

The tickets are only $1 each, and the drawing will be held on April 27, right before the veterans depart on their trip.

Last year, more than 80 veterans from Port St. Lucie participated in the Honor Flight, and there's hope that even more can go this year.

To purchase a ticket (or 20!) give Yvette Cruz a call at (772) 871-5159.

Consider it your way of saying "Thank you" to a veteran.

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone, and drive safe.
