Happy Easter Everyone! I know it’s been a challenge to make the holiday special this year. With the self quarantine, it’s been more difficult to get the supplies we need to make Easter baskets for the kids. And for churchgoers who normally dress in their very Sunday best, we won’t get that rare photo opportunity with everyone dressed up. However, may I suggest to have Easter at home this year! If you’ve got some plastic eggs leftover from years past (like we do), host a hunt in your backyard! And since most of us has been trapped with no place to go for a couple weeks, get dressed up for Sunday dinner and take that family photo in the backyard! My family is planning to make it the best we can from home so I encourage you do something outside of the normal to make Easter a special day this year.

Here are the Recurrent Events headlines for the week of April 5-11, 2020.
