  1. I did not see any celebrations for Middleport this labor day? I was disappointed as they had one every year. Viv :(

    • Hi Viv – The book sale, basket raffles and Kiddie Parade took place on Saturday. Happenings were smaller this year but still good fundraisers – Rotary made more money with their basket raffle at the Parish Hall than last year. Thanks for the note!

  2. What is the date and times of the Easter egg hunt, and where is it being held?

      Still trying to find that out, Mallory. When we know, we will share it. (Have contacted a few folks and someone is supposed to get back to us.)

      The annual Easter Egg Hunt that is sponsored by the Rotary Club will be held on Saturday, April 19, at Rotary Park. Start time is 9:30 AM.
      Age groups are 0-4, 5-7, and 8-10. A flyer will be going home from the elementary school on Wed. If you have a child in the Royalton-Hartland Elementary School, watch for the flyer!
