First Lady Dianne Bentley Hosts Easter Egg Hunt at Mansion

MONTGOMERY – First Lady Dianne Bentley today hosted Mrs. Griffin’s kindergarten class from Wilson Elementary for an Easter Egg Hunt at the Mansion. The students participated in a variety of outdoor activities that included arts and crafts, a short walking tour of the Mansion grounds, and a storybook session with Mrs. Bentley reading “Bently and Egg” by William Joyce.

Mrs. Bentley, a grandmother of six, was more than happy to host the children at the Mansion.

“It was my pleasure to honor the Easter season by hosting a kindergarten class from Wilson Elementary,” Mrs. Bentley said. “It is always nice to see the excitement on young children’s faces as they play on the grounds and admire the beauty of God’s creation. The historic Mansion and the Alabama-shaped pool are always impressive to classes when they tour, so I am blessed to have been able to share it with them today.”

More than 800 brightly colored eggs covered the Mansion lawn and were quickly discovered by the students.
