Treats for Easter

LEONGATHA residents enjoyed the return of its special Easter guests who roamed the streets delivering chocolate eggs last week.

Nola Sneddon and Val Pistrucci grew up in Leongatha and have been distributing eggs in festive costume for the last 35 years.

“We were local girls born and raised in Leongatha area and it is always great to come home,” Ms Sneddon said.

“We get great pleasure in distributing the eggs along with some cheer and fun around Leongatha. A smile and a hug cost nothing but they certainly bring a lot of joy to all.”

Ms Sneddon and Ms Pistrucci started the tradition in memory of their grandmother Eveline Smith.

Mrs Smith passed away in 1986 and was a resident of Woorayl Lodge, one of the major sponsors who donated chocolate goods to the cause.

“This year we would like to thanks Woorayl Lodge Ladies Auxiliary, Lions Club of Leongatha and Leongatha Chamber of Commerce and Industry for their support,” Ms Sneddon said.

All proceeds went towards the Good Friday Appeal.
