Lions Roar: Easter egg hunting

Community contributed by Jackie Cushman

The Molokai Lions Club annual Easter Egg Hunt and Contest took place on Saturday, April 23 at the Kaunakakai Soccer Field. About 125 children hunted for 1400 “hidden” hard cooked eggs, with 40 entries for the egg, basket, bonnet contest. Two children in each of the three age groups received a Golden egg, and first place winners as well as the Golden egg winners received an Easter basket and an Icee certificate (mahalo Kim!). The Easter Baskets were donated to the Molokai Lions Club from Woody’s Inc. in Illinois.  Woody has been a longtime supporter of Molokai Lions Club, donating Easter baskets as well as Christmas stockings over the past many years.
