DEXTER - The Dexter Regional Development Corporation, the Dexter Methodist Church and Maine Highlands Federal Credit Union are working together to bring Dexter area kids a fun morning celebrating Easter during the Easter Hat Parade Contest on Saturday, April 15th, the day before Easter.
The Event will start promptly at 9 AM at the Dexter Methodist Church with the Church ladies cooking up a FREE Breakfast for chaperoned children up to 12 years of age. Adults eat by donation.
