Metal Easter Bunny
This scrap-metal Easter Bunny shows up every year in Annawan, Ill. Twenty-three years ago the ag teacher at the local high school, along with several accomplices, welded together a bunch of sheet metal and auto aprts to create the 6-ft. tall creature. They then loaded it in a truck and in the middle of the night deposited it on the lawn of bean and Jean Larson. The Larsons stored the rabbit in their garage and the next year at Easter they deposited it on some-one else's lawn. The tradition has continued every year since then. On Easter, some residents drive around town until they find out who received the unusual lawn ornament. Photo shows Vern Griffiths of Annawan, who found the "dumb bunny" on his lawn one Easter. He spent the next year deciding who should be the next lucky recipient.
