Upcoming Event

2014 Easter Egg Hunt

Lions Easter Egg Hunt Planned for April 19th

       Local young people are encouraged to bring their baskets and bags to gather Easter goodies.  The Morris Lions Club will again sponsor an Easter Egg Hunt for Morris children at Gould Park, east of Union Street (across from Morris High School) on Saturday, April 19, at 10:30 AM.  The park will be divided into sections with age groups marked with signs.  The 1-3 year old treasure hunters will be in the section nearest the pavilion.  The 4-5 year olds will search the area nearest the playground and tennis courts, while the sections for those ages 6-7 and 8-9-10 years will be located in the lower section of Gould Park.  Parents are encouraged to bring their children and to make certain youngsters have a bucket or bag to carry their Easter eggs home.  Also, since the entire hunt takes only about five minutes,  children will want to be there 15 minutes before 10:30 to make sure they are there for the starting signal.

Morris Lions Club members help the Easter bunny scatter thousands of  plastic Easter eggs filled with wrapped candies.  Children are also encouraged to keep a sharp look out for the gold and silver colored eggs and eggs marked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, which win the large Easter baskets given as prizes.   Bring the special eggs to the Lions Club worker with the baskets for that age group to claim the prize.  The Easter Bunny will also be there to visit with the youngsters, providing a photo opportunity for parents with cameras.  This event is free and planned by Morris Lions to add joy to the Easter holiday.  For additional information, please call Lion members Lori or Doug Linn at 815-942-8262.
