Cople District VFD’s Easter Egg Hunt last Saturday at Kinsale shone bright with gleeful faces, as more than 60 kids enjoyed games, refreshments, and the company of the Easter Bunny in the search for eggs stuffed with candy and money in honor of the season. Several rode on the firetruck afterward in the company of parents and yes, even grandparents, who had themselves participated in the event in their own childhood. The family with connections from farthest away? The Paolas! Father Simon was raised in South Africa, near famous writer Laurens van der Post’s farm. James Paola, 9, is very interested in history; his brother, Andrew, 7, shot his first wild turkey this weekend under the tutelage of Bill Miller.
