Greet­ings & Sa­lu­ta­tions! Here’s what’s new this week in the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity.

Happy Easter! Did you know that the idea of the Easter Bunny orig­i­nated in Ger­many in the 1700s – but it was not a rab­bit at first, but a hare! Or, did you know that Kinder Sur­prise candy is il­le­gal in the US? Or did you know that 76% of peo­ple eat the ears of a choco­late Easter Bunny first? Fas­ci­nat­ing fac­toids for you Easter peeps!!!

Al­berta and Ed Neufeld would like to ex­tend their ap­pre­ci­a­tion and grat­i­tude to the Stan­dard First Re­spon­ders, for their quick re­sponse as­sist­ing Al­berta with her re­cent meneirs at­tack. It is re­as­sur­ing that help is close by and their com­mit­ment is a bless­ing to the com­mu­nity.
