Good Friday closings announced

Most government offices will be taking a three-day weekend in observance of the Good Friday holiday, while multiple  Easter egg hunts are scheduled this coming weekend.

The offices of the Senior Center Resources and Public Transit (formerly Hunt County Committee on Aging/The Connection) will also be closed Friday.
