Siesta Seen When Patterson asked DeMarsh whether that conversation had taken place, DeMarsh replied that it had. "I think [staff mem- bers] could simply begin to implement [the no-parking rules on North Shell Road] under the current resolution," which was approved April 9, he added. Patterson then made a motion for staff mem- bers to get those signs up "at their earliest convenience." Vice Chairwoman Christine Robinson seconded the motion, which passed unanimously. A VERY HAPPY EASTER New Siesta Key Village Association (SKVA) President Wendall Jacobsen, general man- ager of Beach Bazaar, has reported to the SKA and his own organization's members in recent days that the Village's annual Easter Egg Hunt, held April 19, was a huge success. SKVA Treasurer Roz Hyman said the event had 145 paid participants. "There were very, very few no-shows this year," she added. The only complaints she heard, Hyman continued during the May 6 SKVA meeting, was that not all of the children who wanted to participate were able to do so. "But everybody had a good time." SKVA officers pointed out that participa- tion by representatives of the county Fire Department — with equipment on display — and members of the Sheriff's Office's Mounted Patrol always proves incredibly popular with the children who attend the pre-Easter festiv- ities in the Village. DECK DASH The Daiquiri Deck has announced a new 5K event, which is being held every Monday, every week, at each of the restaurant's loca- tions — in Siesta Village (5250 Ocean Blvd.), on St. Armands (325 John Ringling Blvd.) and on Venice Island (300 W. Venice Ave.). Complete the run and get a small free daiquiri, a 10-oz. domestic draft or a 10-oz. smoothie.
