Easter party was a memorable one

To the Editor:

What a lovely Easter Party the VAC group put on at the DeKalb Senior Center. If you didn’t have a good time, it was your own fault!

We had an Easter hat contest, lovely accordion music and an Easter Parade. The egg hunt was a lot of fun. Then came the delicious feast. The treat table held a huge variety of goodies. Sure wish the baker would share her or his recipe for chocolate caramel coconut bars – delicious!

Kudos to all who contributed, worked, and participated, especially Nancy, Fred and everyone. A memorable one for sure.

Oaken Acres good for community

To the Editor:

Your article on Oaken Acres in your March 26 paper brought back memories of a time we needed advice on some baby rabbits that were orphaned.

Kathy Stelford answered our questions and everything turned out successfully. I remember when Oaken Acres was first opened when I was living in Sycamore and thought at the time that this is exactly what the area needed.

Many animals have been rescued over the years due to the expert care of Oaken Acres. Thank you Kathy Stelford – keep up the good work.
