The Easter Bunny is hopping into town and leaving plenty of eggs in his wake. A handful of Easter egg hunts will the highlight of the weekend for many of the younger members of the Lowell community. However, adults can take comfort in knowing that there are, among other things, pancakes and planets in store for them this weekend in Lowell.

Time for More Pancakes
It’s been a while since we’ve had a pancake supper in the area, but the Alto Fire Department is rectifying that. They will be dishing up pancakes and all the fixin’s on Saturday from 5pm-8pm. Head to 6260 Bancroft in Alto for the grub. The firefighters would appreciate your donation at the door.
See the Stars
Or the planets or whatever else the folks at the Veen Observatory are able to find for you during their Saturday visitor’s night. In celebration of Astronomy Week, admission is free from 8:30pm-11pm this Saturday. Future visitor nights will run every other Saturday night through the fall, weather permitting.

Stock up on Food
Finally, it’s that time again when the FROM Food Mobile will make a stop at the fairgrounds. Anyone in the area who needs some extra food can stop by on Saturday between 10am-11am in the main exhibition building. Food will be distributed until it runs out.
