It’s time for the Denair Lions Club Annual Easter Egg Hunt! This tradition has been put on by the Lions for over 25 years. Almost 3000 eggs are boiled, colored then hidden in the grassy fields of Denair Elementary Charter Academy on Lester Road. The event is open to all children ages 10 and under and is free. There are five designated egg hunting areas, divided by age. Parents may only aid their child in the two lower age groups. There are major prize eggs for each group, which are either gold or silver, and regular colored eggs that are marked for smaller prizes such as candy fruity’s. It take the Lions Club about ten hours to prepare for this event, but from start to finish, only about fifteen minutes for the kids to hunt and find all the eggs. According to event chairman Lion Glenn Deorksen, “It is the funnest event that we do all year for the community.” This event continues to grow not only in popularity but in the number of children who attend. It is estimated between 350-400 kids will show up this year! The event starts at 8:50 am this Saturday. Don’t be late, and be sure to bring your baskets!
