Collecting Eggs, Claiming Prizes
SEELEY LAKE – Preparation for the April 15 Seeley Lake Lions Easter Egg Hunt took hours, but the egg hunters picked their eggs, received their prizes and enjoyed their candy in less than thirty minutes. While the Lions agree the Easter egg hunt is a lot of work, they also agree the smiles and joy they see on the children's faces is why they do it every year.
Lion Ken Kronsperger said 25 volunteers cleaned and filled 3,000 eggs with candy on Friday afternoon. Another 96 eggs contained a ticket with a number.
Just after 10 a.m., the Lions started setting up the hunt at Seeley Lake Elementary School. Children were divided into three groups by age. Each group had 1,000 candy-filled eggs plus 32 prize eggs hidden in their area. Before the hunt began there were plenty of opportunities to get a photo with the Easter Bunny.
The egg hunt was finished in seven minutes. Children and parents quickly opened their eggs collecting their candy and hoping for a prize ticket. Most went home with a basket full of candy, cookies, bottled water from Blackfoot Telephone and a 2017 Lions Easter Egg Hunt Coloring Book and crayons. Those who found eggs containing a number lined up to claim prizes.
