The Easter Event sponsored by the Rocca Sisters and Associates was a Sp’EGG’tacular success with tons of families from the community joining in all of the activities at Ireland House Museum at Oakridge Farm.
“We saw many happy faces, some new, some familiar, and are thrilled to be creating traditions and memories to last a life time,” explains Cathy Rocca proudly. “Many families and extended families, grandparents and toddlers enjoyed the day, and that is what we strive for, an inclusive event for everyone!”
“There was so much to see and do, including a colouring contest, balloon twisting, face painting, vendor market, silent auction and of course traditional tours of Ireland House Museum,” continues Tanya Rocca.
The sun was shining as children participated in all of the activities, including the very popular Easter Egg Hunt. No matter what the temperature, there is something about brightly coloured eggs and an outdoor family event that warms your heart.
Ireland House at Oakridge Farm is one of the oldest heritage homes in the community, and the Museums of Burlington bring past to present by fostering exploration and curiosity. Historical interpreters led families through interactive traditional Easter traditions, including egg dying and crafts.
We look forward to seeing you at all of our events. Head to RoccaSisters.ca today for more on our next event, the Kite Festival taking place on June 3rd! For more on this and other events we support, head to RoccaSisters.ca, follow us on Facebook @Rocca Sisters or Twitter @TheRoccaSisters.
HOP ON OVER TO IRELAND HOUSE MUSEUM for a fun-filled day with The Rocca Sisters featuring an Easter egg hunt and visits with the Easter bunny!
One of the ways The Rocca Sisters Team thanks our community is by providing free admission to the Sp’EGG’tacular Easter Event, which will be taking place this upcoming Saturday, March 24th from 11am – 3:00pm at Ireland House Museum on Oakridge Farm.
“The Rocca Sisters Team are all about family and creating traditions, and this event is a perfect fit!” Cathy Rocca explains, “Ireland House Museum is a local treasure with wonderful educational programs and an incredible historic collection. We invite everyone to bring their best Easter basket and come out to this free event. Donations are encouraged to help the Museums of Burlington continue to provide children’s programs and maintain their collection.”
The possibilities are endless at the Sp’EGG’tacular Easter Event. Visit The Rocca Sisters tent for some amazing give-aways! “There’s just so much to see and do, including crafts, face painting, vendor market, silent auction and of course traditional tours of Ireland House Museum,” says Tanya Rocca.
Back by popular demand, the Egg Hunt will take place throughout the event. “The Museum has taken extra steps to make the egg hunt enjoyable for all children. Each child gathers three eggs of the same colour, which they redeem for a ticket to get a treat bag. There are no bonus prizes for more eggs. The coveted golden egg is redeemable for a special prize,” explains Tanya. We wonder are they obscured by bushes, up in a tree, under some rocks, no one will tell! But what we do know, is that the prizes are terrific!

International Women’s Day took place on Thursday, March 8th and is focused on inspiring women around the world and celebrating their economic, political and social achievements, as well as focusing world attention on areas that still require further action. We wanted to reach out and recognize all the incredible, hardworking women in our community.
Each year, a theme is picked by the United Nations. This year, the theme is #PressforProgress.
With the recent Hollywood film industry scandal and World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Reportfindings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. We are lucky to live in a community where strong leadership by women is accepted and celebrated. As two nationally top-ranked sales representatives, we support any woman striving to achieve their goals and trying to make a difference. And when you do achieve success, it is also just as important to give back to the community that helped you, and lend a hand to others who need it.
We would personally like to share our appreciation and respect for our mother, Joan Rocca, who impacted our lives in ways words could never express. She was a strong loving woman and she made us into who we are today, instilling in us the passion to strive for the top. Our mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer in 2009. Since then, we have celebrated her and carried on her memory through various Ovarian Cancer projects throughout the community to help give support to other women suffering from the disease. Our mother was an incredible woman and she continues to make an impact in our lives each and every day.
We are very fortunate to live in a country where there are no restrictions to what women can do, or what we can achieve. We invite you to reach out to the special women in your life who have made an impact on you, and make your appreciation known!
