Spring has arrived! Brilliant sunshine, flowers blooming, birds singing, green grass and baseball!

Have you seen the City of Aurora’s 2019 Parks & Rec mailing? It is full of events for everyone - from sports to summer camp to exercise to senior events! If you would like a copy, stop by the Parks & Rec Office in The Walker Building at 129 W. Pioneer Trail or visit auroraoh.com/Parks-Recreation and view it online.

April will have Easter Egg Hunts and visits from the Easter Bunny at Aurora Farms Premium Outlets, Aurora Manor and Independence Village.

Easter brunch will be served at many Aurora restaurants - The Aurora Inn, Bertram Inn & Conference Center, Mario’s, 1815 Tavern and Thorncreek Winery.
