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.
