Youths, seniors to enjoy ‘Hop Around Sherwood’

Sherwood Assisted Living, 550 W. Hendrickson Road, will host “Hop Around Sherwood,” an event designed for the enjoyment of participants of all ages, from 2-3 p.m. Saturday, April 8.

Instead of a traditional Easter-egg hunt, the children will go through the halls of Sherwood and get candy treats from each resident. They’ll also be given free bunny ears, take a picture with the Easter Bunny, have a chance to win prizes, enjoy refreshments, and more.

The event was created in the spirit of Sherwood’s annual Halloween event in October, organizers note, when visiting youngsters brighten the spirits of the residents.

“The annual tradition of trick-or-treating is always a highlight of our residents’ year,” Sherwood director Andi Magill said. “We definitely wanted to do another spring event around Easter and find something to connect our residents to their community. ‘Hop Around Sherwood’ combines the fun elements of Easter and Halloween in a way that the kids and our residents can really interact which will have a positive impact for all generations.”
