Leah Talbott, from Palisade and a student at the Noah’s Ark Kindergarten School, finds an Easter egg during the Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies’ annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Palisade Food Bank, 120 N. River Road, today. The kids were also treated to games, bubble-blowing and pictures with an “Easter llama.” Each student also received a book by Dr. Seuss.
The hopes of having Palisade peaches recognized as Colorado’s state fruit were dashed Wednesday evening when the state House hastily voted to kill a bill that would have done that. It seems at least one non-fruit had a lot to do with it.
