A basket of thanks for Easter Egg hunt supporters

Print Article

I just wanted to write and thank all the members of our community that donated eggs and brought their children to the Lions Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Mud Hole on 15 April. A special thanks to the businesses that participated including, Bonner Saw, Akres, Sisí Barbershop, Mitchellís (Harvest Foods), Ranch Club, Napa, Macís, Action Auto, Old Town Foods, Aerocet, Les Schwab, Big Moose, Family Foods, Hardwood Grill, Bordertown Feed, Floors & More, The Vay Store and the Beacon. We were also very excited that 2nd Harvest at Oldtown Foodbank also donated eggs. Also, a big thank you to our advertisers, The Miner, The Priest River Times, The Beacon and the school district for posting on the Leaderboard. We couldnít have done it without you.

Another thank you to Bretta Schmidt, her family and the Priest River Leoís for boiling and coloring a lot of the eggs. It was a fun day for all. The baskets were put together by Lioness Robyn Anderson and Dee Birdsell. Thank you, they were beautiful. James and Kelly Niesley, JT Renfro, along with Lions/Lioness Ethel Perry, Trevor and Bretta Schmidt-Favaro, Curtis Mulalley, Leonard Parenteau, Jeannie Smith, Margi Carlson, hid the eggs, provided bubbles for entertainment and distributed beanie babies and toys. Thank you to all that participated. If I have forgotten anyone, I apologize and we appreciate everyone that contributed and attended.

Most importantly we want to thank the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the use of the Mud Hole and to Linda Lamb, the park ranger, and her crew for opening the park early and attending to all the parking. That took a lot off the shoulders of our members.

We hope everyone had a great time and congratulations to the basket and money winners. The Lions appreciated the great weather and hope everyone had the best time.

See you next year.

Jeannie Smith is chair of the Easter Egg Hunt for the Priest River Lions Club.
