Happy Easter!
 
The spring has finally arrived and it's already time to paint the eggs, find the Easter Bunny and prepare the grilling equipment as well as get ready for garden works. The days have become longer, so we have more time and energy to spend outside, attend different events. There's a lot coming up, so stay tuned and be active to take the most of it.
