DRUMS, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) – We’re approaching our second Easter in the midst of a pandemic.

“It’s been so tough this year with the holidays, he actually never had the chance to see the Easter Bunny. It was a love/hate relationship, but now he loves the bunny,” said Sara Brown.

Easter in the midst of a pandemic, round two. But with vaccines on the rise, this holiday is being celebrated a little different from last year.

“Last Easter, we were locked down, shut down. We didn’t allow any family members or any children. We weren’t able to do our Easter Egg Hunt. So this year, we decided to open it up and hopefully make it a little bigger and better for the children who came,” said Kim Perchak, Executive Director, Providence Place Senior Living.

We had several Easter egg hunts throughout our community today like this one in Drums. Providence Place Senior Living invited people of all ages to hunt for eggs on their lawn. And the Easter Bunny made an appearance, too.

“It’s definitely getting closer to feeling like normal. We spend a little more time with our friends and families since we’re all vaccinated. It’s definitely giving us some hope,” said Brown.

She says though we’re not back to 100% normalcy, there’s at least a light at the end of the tunnel.

Governor Wolf is also easing restrictions on restaurants statewide Sunday.
