Swanson urged attendees at the Easter celabration event to thank managers at any Wantagh businesses who supported the event.

Besides not celebrating Easter Jehovahs Witnesses don't celebrate their birthdays,Christmas,Mother's Day and so on. JW believe that Jesus had his second coming *invisibly* in the month of October 1914. -- Danny Haszard FMI http://www.dannyhaszard.com
