Glen Ellen’s Easter egg hunt, art show, ducks return

From the imaginary to the exotic

Animals abound in this week’s Glen Ellen news, from the imaginary to the exotic, and everything in between. Let’s start with the most obvious.

Egg-laying rabbit at Dunbar School

Yes, the Easter Bunny and his cohorts from the Glen Ellen Volunteer Fire Department top the news today. Our annual Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for this coming Saturday morning, 10 a.m. sharp, at Dunbar School. If I listened correctly to Edmund Joseph, incident commander for this event, Glen Ellen’s Easter Egg Hunt is a 45-year tradition here in our town. I haven’t been around quite that long, but I have to admit our two boys loved these wild, crazy and quick hunts back in the day. For them, the old fire truck was as much a draw as the colored eggs. Who in Glen Ellen doesn’t treasure snapshots of their kids on that truck?

In the 1970s and ’80s when our kids were young, we didn’t have those snazzy chocolate fire trucks redeemed for every golden egg discovered. But then, we didn’t have Betty Kelly and her daughter Caroline’s delightfully delicious Wine Country Chocolates, either. Oh my, Glen Ellen has grown up, sporting more gourmet temptations than most other towns its size.
