The Maltese Center wishes you a Happy Easter filled with hope, renewal, & joyful living!
On the evening of Good Friday, April 2nd. We had a visit from the legendary "Maltese Falcon". The beautiful creature landed atop the Maltese Center centered with our sign. It couldn't be more perfect than this. We hope the Falcon visits us soon again. Perhaps the Falcon will become our honorary mascot!
