Scrambled Eggs

EASTER CELEBRANTS: (From left) Michael, Madeline, Natalie and Theodore.

Another Easter has passed. Who among us can look on indifferently as eager children hunt bright plastic Easter eggs stuffed with goodies and treats? Certainly not the Clarks of New Jersey!

Theodore and Natalie kicked off their 2007 Easter celebration on a Metuchen soccer pitch, where community leaders went to great lengths to promote the town’s municipal egg hunt. Later that day, the children joined their cousins Michael and Madeline at a private-sector event: the Clarks of Pennsylvania Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Family Reunion.

Aunt Diana took advantage of the mountainous Moon Valley Falls terrain to provide the children with a hunt that was both challenging for the advanced players, yet enjoyable for the beginners. Notice how the baskets above overflow in a miraculously even distribution of eggs. [Note to Aunt Diana: for this accomplishment, CNJ salutes you!]

Joining the event was the popular and beloved Sister Bernice Marie, whose antics are occasionally chronicled in this forum. Also participating was Bound Brook, N.J.-based Emily Fabiano, a former Rutgers University official who has provided companionship, counsel and comfort to CNJ since the late 1960s.
