NORTH WEBSTER — Several dedicated members of the North Webster Lions Club were out at the North Webster ball diamonds early today, Saturday, March 31, to hide eggs for the club’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Four ball fields were used so children could hunt according to age group. Toddlers and those under age 4 were on one field, while pre-schoolers and kindergardeners were in another. The first through third graders got to hunt on one of the larger fields and those in fourth and fifth grade hunted on the last available field.
The North Webster Lions Club has hosted the Easter Egg Hunt for approximately 40 years and many of those who helped this morning have helped for at least 20 years. It takes the volunteers about 20 minutes to hide all the eggs.
The Lions hide approximately 540 eggs or 45 dozen dyed hard boiled eggs, which are donated by Creighton Brothers, along with 60 or 5 dozen plastic eggs that were worth $2 or $5 when turned in. Toddlers who participated were also looking for a special egg to receive a stuffed Easter Bunny as a prize as well.
