Oyster Easter is just around the corner (March 30, Travellers Rest, 1-5 p.m.) and the kick-off party was last week. Fun, fun, fun. You’re seeing a photo of the oysters at the party, which went like hotcakes, because a couple of our wonderful candidates were out of town and couldn’t attend. No fair showing photos of just some of the candidates, but below are brief bios of them.
