We were pleased to bring the Easter Bunny around to Pine Communities on April 9th. This was the second year for this event which stems from our annual Santa Express that we’ve done for decades. Crews had to brave cool temperatures and some snow flakes, but enjoyed getting out in the community and providing chocolate treats to children and milk bones to our four legged friends.
