Stash the plastic eggs and finish off the last of the jellybeans, it’s time to get back into the swing of things. But before we say goodbye to Easter week, let’s review some of the highlights this great week brought us.

– Volunteers have made it possible for green thumbs and wannabes to grow some of their own food in Vidalia. A community garden is now open for use, and it sounds like a great idea to us.

– Fifth-grade students at Cathedral School collected their change for 40 days and recently handed over $300 to Operation Rice Bowl — a non-profit that helps feed and care for the world.

– Area churches put the hearts and hands into elaborate Easter programs over the weekend, sharing the story of a risen Lord with hundreds in the community.

– Trinity Episcopal Day School has hired a new headmaster, Les Hegwood. Hegwood and his family will be joining our community soon. Welcome!

– Hundreds of area children dashed for eggs Saturday at the 54th annual Duncan Park Easter egg hunt. Thank you, longtime sponsor Bob Ewing for your work on this hunt.

Spring is certainly upon us now; let’s enjoy it before those hot days of summer creep in.
