A dozen parishioners came to our Easter parade adorned with fashionable and fantastic chapeaus. For our first ever "Easter Bonnet" contest, it was a terrific turn-out. Thanks to all who participated! The congregation chose three winners (it was a hard choice) --- Linda Drabik, Henry Sawyer, and George Robertson. (Pictured are Linda and George with runner-up Caroline Robertson.) The winners received gift certificates from Bolton Orchards, Essential Therapies Day Spa, and Nashoba Valley Winery. Congratulations Linda, George, and Henry!
