Successful Easter Egg Hunt
|Reported by Ruth Kaempf|
Once again it was time for the good elves of the Swiss club to get out the colors and all kinds of other items to decorate the Easter eggs for the now famous Easter egg hunt which has been an ongoing event and success for over thirty years, and at the same Sunnyvale park too. The weather looked rather threatening the week leading up to Easter, but once again the gods were in our favor and brought out the sun. This writer remembers bringing her own children, now in their mid to late thirties, to this Fest. The last couple of years these same "children" have attended with their own off-spring. The Easter egg hunt has indeed become a multi-generation ritual for a number of members and I hope that it will continue. After all happiness is about creating good memories. I overheard some comments that the food was better this year than last, although as a neutral Swiss I cannot second these comments. It looked to me as though everybody ate heartily and had a grand time. The Easter Bunny also fitted better in his suit this year than last which was good because last year an older child was overheard remarking that the back of the bunny's neck was showing. Now, as in the Oscars, it is time for the thank yous. Thank you to the club organizers for another successful Easter Fest. Thank you to the volunteers staffing the food line, the makers of the fruit salad and fabulous desserts, the egg and Easter bag decorators, the flower providers, the folks who staffed the drink sales stand, to Nik Goetschi for his enthusiastic photographer service, and last but not least, the "setter and the cleaner uppers". If I forgot anyone, many thanks to them also.
