La Crosse area Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt

32nd year for egg hunt

Kids in our area had the chance to go Easter Egg Hunting.

The North La Crosse Lions Club held their annual Egg Hunt on Saturday at the Copeland Park Shelter.

The Lions Club was chartered in our area in 1922, helping families and hosting many events since.

A number of raffle prizes were available at Saturday’s event.

While organizers say their hunt may have shrunk over the years, they still enjoy holding the event every year.

“I remember our fist hunt, when we started out we had almost 800 kids here but now more institutions are doing this kind of a hunt. We still get several hundred kids at our hunts, but it’s something that we want to do for the north side, or for the whole area anyway,” said North La Crosse Lions Club President Richard Treakle.

This was the 32nd year of the Lions Club’s Easter Egg Hunt.
