SCARBOROUGH — Due to the COVID pandemic, many live events were cancelled in 2020 and 2021. This year, many live events are back including  Easter events taking place at the Scarborough Community Service Hub. 

The Scarborough Community Service Hub has put together an Easter Park Hop event. Those who wish to participate must retrace the Easter Bunnies tracks in order to find the dropped eggs. Print out the Park Hop Egg Hunt coloring page and color in each egg you see at the various locations on the page. Eggs will be located at Peterson Field, Pine Point Beach, Spring Brook Park, Memorial Park, Eastern Trail, and Willey Field. Some eggs might be harder to find than others. 

Once completed send a photo to [email protected] The who submitted their pages to the Scarborough Community Service Hub by April 4 were entered into a drawing. Seven participants won a basket full of goodies and one lucky winner will get their basket delivered by the Easter Bunny himself. Coloring pages can be found at: https://www.scarboroughmaine.org/stay-connected/town-news/default/~board/special-events/post/park-hop-egg-hunt-2022

Hearts & Horses Therapeutic Horseback Riding Center in Buxton was founded in 1995 as a nonprofit corporation by Stephanie Keene and a group of dedicated volunteers.

According to the website, the center was founded with the belief that “riding and caring for horses can profoundly affect the lives of people with and without disabilities.”

Keene, the website states, has expanded the Hearts & Horses facility and programs to ensure that everyone in our  community is able to experience and enjoy the honor of working with horses.
