As Easter weekend approaches-families start to plan their celebrations-whether it's getting together as a big group, or just keeping it immediate family. Whether it's to go to church, or to watch a church service on TV or on line. Everyone in Texas is still practicing good habits with the pandemic not being over yet. Everywhere I go I see people social distancing, I see people in masks (regardless of being inside a local business or not), and it shows. The numbers state wide are going down.

Even with concerts back in swing at different local venues--everyone remains safe and continues to prove our Governor right-that opening wasn't a bad idea. It wasn't a bad idea for the economy, and it wasn't a bad idea because the citizens of the Great State of Texas are smart and not reckless.

Which brings me to my next topic--Easter Festivities in the Permian Basin. The City of Midland will be holding an Easter Egg Hunt this Thursday April 1st to get ready for the holiday this weekend. It's open to kids age 12 and under. The event will take place at the MLK Jr. Community Center, located at 2300 Butternut Lane. There will be 15,000 eggs hidden for the hunt. The event starts at 5pm with pictures with the Easter Bunny, and the hunt starts at 6. They are dividing the kids into five age groups for the hunt. Find out more here.

There are also many other events planned around our area in Midland for families to attend, and you can see more by clicking here. And for Odessa, click here.
