Community sparkplug Dominic Farrenkopf (with the rabbit ears) hands out a chocolate egg to high school speech and drama student Rachel.

The Easter weekend is also a celebration of spring, and Dominic Farrenkopf of Sapphire Lutheran Homes has made it a tradition to dress up as the Easter Bunny and make appearances around the valley, handing out little chocolate eggs.

In his usual weekly appearance on KLYQ's "Event Show" Friday, he was appropriately attired and was well-stocked with eggs. He was also promoting the April 18th dinner supporting the Bitterroot Humane Association and the animal shelter.
