Girl scouts, Easter Bunny help open season at Glenview Dairy Bar
A group of Girl Scouts and the Easter Bunny were among those who visited the Glenview Dairy Bar when it opened for the season Saturday morning.
Beginning Friday afternoon, the 15 Scouts and their three adult leaders set up tents in front of the ice cream stand and camped overnight. They had packed up their tents and were the first people in line for the 10:30 a.m. opening.
Luane Gabuzzi, who co-owns the Glenview Dairy Bar with her brother, Chip Boedicker, said it has been a tradition for Scouts to camp out front for the season's opening, but the event did not take place last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the opening took place without fanfare.
Seated on top of the back seat of a convertible, the Easter Bunny's arrival was unplanned, but appreciated, Gabuzzi said. She said masks will be still required while waiting in line.
"I think everybody has gotten into the routine now. It will be a safe season for everybody," Gabuzzi said.
