    Trinity Episcopal Church parish member Allison Sovetsky celebrates with bubbles out the car window as the Saco church holds their Easter Sunday service, socially distant, in cars in Saco's Aquaboggan Water Park parking lot. Father Dave Dalzell said of the occasion: "It was awesome today to be able to put as many people, as we did, to celebrate the resurrection." According to his count, there were 37 cars and close to 100 people joining in, including those on Zoom and Facebook Live. He added, "I'm looking forward to when we can gather safely and, with the warm weather, be outside together again."
