Here at Olympus Hillwood, we’re planning all kinds of fun events during the month of April. Check out what’s coming up – all you have to do is head down to the leasing office!

National Animal Cracker Day

There’s something about animal crackers that makes them beloved by all age groups – not just kids. With that balsamy flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture, they are irresistible. In America, they’ve been around since 1871, the first batches baked in York, Pennsylvania. Since 1902, 53 different animals have been represented by these sweet treats, made by various manufacturers over the years. This year, April 18 is National Animal Cracker Day and we’d love to celebrate by gifting residents with a pack of free animal crackers. Be sure to mark your calendar!

National Jelly Bean Day

These classic sweet treats, a favorite spring indulgence thanks to their association with Easter, were first mentioned in the Chicago Daily News in 1905 – and Americans have been obsessed with them ever since. Typically, there were about eight classic jelly bean flavors. Today, there are countless flavors from which to choose, including favorites like buttered popcorn and root beer.

To celebrate National Jelly Bean Day on April 22, we’d love for you to drop by the leasing office and guess how many jelly beans are in the jar. If you guess the right amount, you’ll walk away with a fun prize!

No Cups Wine Event

How does a little wine sound to cap off a long week? It’s the perfect way to celebrate a Sunday, right? We think so, too, which is why drinks are on us this April 25. We’ll supply the wine – but don’t bring a cup or glass. That’s against the rules. You’ll have to get creative. Maybe a ziplock bag? Maybe a clean watering can? A flower pot?

We look forward to clinking…well, not glasses, but you get the point! Just remember to bring your ID. You must be 21 years of age or older to participate.
