Scenes Of Easter

By Staff | Apr 23, 2014

Wetzel County residents, young and old, marked the Easter weekend in a variety of memorable ways.

A reenactment of the Last Supper was held at New Martinsville First Church of God Thursday night.

It was followed by the New Martinsville Ministerial Association’s marking Christ’s last earthly day with a cross walk, led by Cameron Benson as Jesus Christ.

Finally, the youngsters of Wetzel County were able to get out into the warm and sunny spring weather as they took part in a Saturday morning Easter egg hunt at Bruce Park. It was perhaps a record crowd with the New Martinsville Parks and Recreation Department estimating attendance of 1,200. At right is Colt Kastigar of New Martinsville with some of the eggs he gathered.
