HAGERSTOWN - Easter Sunday was colder than Christmas Day, according to a Hagerstown weather observer. Sunday's temperature hit a high of 38.6 degrees just after 3:30 p.m., and the low was 25.6 degrees, according to i4weather.net, which is maintained by Greg Keefer. Fruit grower Donald Harding said Sunday was the coldest in a recent string of return-to-winter days. So far, his peach trees, which already are in bloom, seem to be weathering the arctic blast. "I don't see a lot of damage at this point, but it just can't keep going," said Harding, who owns Harding's Orchards in Smithsburg.

Spring is a wonderful time of year To the editor: Oh, what a beautiful time of year … gets our five senses just tingling, doesn't it? The beautiful colors; the smell of flowers and fresh grass; the taste of the famous Easter desserts; the feel of the grass, soft as a carpet under your feet; and the sound of the birds chirping. Our hearts sing with the real reason of the Easter holiday. Hallelujah, Christ is risen! We have such nice small communities where people still care.

More than 500 parents and children filled the 50,000-square-foot complex Saturday with squeals, laughter and praise for the first Easter Family Fun Festival. The Rev. Earl Mills, senior pastor, said the church wanted to reach out to its new neighbors, so it decided to turn the egg hunt into a fun festival for families.

Windy start And a happy April to all! I suppose March does not have the market cornered on windy weather. So if you have a kite ... I guess you should string it up and give it a fly. Busy week ahead What a busy week or so ahead of us. A few quick reminders ... picture day is tomorrow at the elementary school. So don those bright smiles, those slicked-down hairdos, and those pretty- as-a-picture outfits and say cheese! Today is the prekindergarten and kindergarten registration at the school; please bring the appropriate paper- work and get those wee ones signed up. Walk-a-thon planned Doesn't weather such as this make you want to take a walk?
