Minner receives replica of Delaware's White House 'Pysanka' from Gonzales On April 11, in the governor's office in Legislative Hall in Dover, Olga Gonzales, of Clay- ton, presented Gov. Ruth Ann Minner with an exact replica of the egg she decorated for this year's White House Easter egg display in Washington, D. C. Former first lady Hillary Clinton began the tradition of a White House Easter egg display, eight years ago. Each state and the District of Columbia will have an egg on display in the White House dur- ing April. Minner expressed her appreciation of the craftsmanship and thoughtfulness of Gonzales and indicated that the egg would be on display at Woodburn during the Easter season. This year, the Delaware De- partment of Agriculture again chose Gonzales as the artist to decorate Delaware's egg. The egg is decorated with symbols, which are representative of Delaware. The flower is the peach blossom. The clear gems represent the Diamond State. The Amish art represents the Amish population in Delaware. The pine needles represent Delaware's pine trees. Gonzales, who came to the United States in 1951 as a Ukrainian immigrant, learned to create these eggs from her mother who practiced this centuries old Ukrainian art before her. The eggs are called "Pysanka" and the oldest known egg dates back to 6,000 B. C. Ukrainians give the "Pysanka" w friends and farrlily an Easter morning.
