Gathering On The Green

The Village Green welcomes the beginning of Spring on Easter weekend with two treasured
community traditions.

Residents and visitors to the Cashiers area are invited to join the celebration beginning with the Sixth Annual Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by S’More Kids Klothes.  The egg-stravaganza for children 10 years and younger begins at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday, March 26.  Children will be divided according to age in three separate areas near the Gazebo at Highway 64.  

“The hunt features thousands of colorful eggs scattered in the park, some with special prizes,” says Ann Self, Executive Director of The Village Green.  She advises to be on time and bring your own basket.

As always, the Easter Bunny will make a visit for photos, so also plan to bring a camera.

On Sunday, March 27, Cashiers area churches will celebrate Easter with the annual Community Easter Sunrise Service at 7:00 A.M. at the gazebo and lawn of The Village Green.  The service features live music, scripture, and an uplifting message with the backdrop of a beautiful sunrise over the mountains.  Those attending are encouraged to bring a lawn chair.  “If you’re looking for powerful inspiration and a sense of community, you don’t want to miss this,” comments Self, “The Easter Sunrise Service is such a meaningful and memorable event for family and friends.”

The Village Green provides a beautiful, free public space, however it is conserved by a nonprofit organization that depends on contributions to maintain the park and provide such an exceptional venue for the community.  To learn more about The Village Green and these events or to make a donation, call (828) 743-3434 or visit
