Are we actually on our way to SPRING! Aren’t the first flowers poking out just before Easter just beautiful after the ice and snow? They are so full of hope. This makes sense as the celebration of Easter commemorates Jesus’ resurrection and the promise of eternal life.

So, where do the jelly beans and chocolate rabbits come in? According to the Center for Children's Literature and Culture the first Easter Bunny legend was documented in the 1500s. By 1680, the first story about a rabbit laying eggs and hiding them in a garden was published. These legends were brought to the United States in the 1700s, when German immigrants settled in Pennsylvania Dutch country. The tradition of making nests for the rabbit to lay its eggs in soon followed. Eventually, nests became decorated baskets and colorful eggs were swapped for candy, treats and other small gifts.

We hope you are able to join with family or friends to celebrate the resurrection, the fun traditions, and the hope of spring. Think about someone who might be alone, and send a card or invite them to join you.

The churches in the area have a variety of events starting with Maudy Thursday and continuing through Easter Sunday. The Monongahela Community Good Friday Service will be held at First Christian on 6th Street this year from noon-3p.m. Check the links under local churches for more details and other services in the area.

As always, we appreciate your referrals and confidence in us and our family to always provide you with the highest level of individual and empathetic care.


Happy Spring!
