For kids, one of the best things about Easter is the fun of an Easter Egg hunt. Whether they’re searching for colorfully dyed hard-boiled eggs, or bright plastic eggs filled with treats, children have happily participated in this memory-making tradition for generations.
Marie Palmer, President of the Peebles Lions Club, says it’s a tradition the Lions want to grow and be a part of for years to come.
“It’s our first year to hold an Easter egg hunt, and we’re planning on doing it from here on out,” Palmer says. “I’m expecting even more people will turn out next year.”
Nearly 100 children gathered on Saturday, April 8 for the club’s inaugural Egg Hunt. Hundreds of eggs were hidden around the town’s old baseball field next to the Lions Club Hall.
“We wanted to make sure that every kid gets plenty of eggs,” said Palmer.
Divided into four age groups from newborn to age 12, the kids made quick work of collecting the plastic eggs and cashing them in for Easter treats.
“This is a blast for the kids,” said Rose White, as she helped her four-year-old daughter Leigh dump the eggs she’d gathered into a collection bin, “They’ve done an amazing job organizing this and making sure there are lots of fun things for the kids to do.”
In addition to participating in the Egg Hunt, the kids were also eligible to win prizes, enter a coloring contest, color eggs, and decorate cookies.
While the Lions Club holds many fund raisers throughout the year, the Easter Egg Hunt fulfills the club’s community service obligation. Giving back to the community, Palmer says, involves the participation of many people.
“We had help gathering our donations, and we’re so grateful to the Family Dollar in Peebles for donating two large boxes of Easter prizes, and the Dollar Tree and Walmart in West Union who also donated prizes,” she said. “We had a lot of people who jumped in and helped us out with this event, and we’re so thankful to all of them.”
The Lucky Lads and Lasses 4-H Club members were among those who showed up to help the Lions with their community service project.
“The 4-H kids put out the eggs, filled the treat bags, and helped with the egg coloring, cookie decorating, and coloring contest,” said Palmer. “I think taking part in this project has been a very good experience for them, and we’re grateful for all their help.”

Coloring eggs was one of the numerous activities provided for the children who attended the Peebles Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt.
