March 31st, Easter Sunday, was a beautiful day to share a picnic with family and friends. Families gathered for the second annual Easter on the Lawn came for Pastor Chris Yost from Crossway United Methodist Church Easter sermon under the beautiful blue sky. This unique service includes a polo match and Easter egg hunt, with Communion in place of the traditional champagne divot stomp. Easter On the Lawn officially kicked off the polo season early at Prestonwood Polo Club this year. The home Interscholastic Polo Team, Prestonwood, got in a practice match for the upcoming Inaugural USPA Youth Series field tournament April 27-28. Currently the USPA Central Regional interscholastic Champions in arena polo, the team hopes to take the title for field polo as well and go to nationals in Virginia. Bring the family, BYOB/Picnic and cheer them on at only $10 a car.
