Green Eggs & Wham! It’s over. Kids burst from the starting lines like fireworks in a Katy Perry song. The annual Sandpoint Lions Club Easter Hunt launched under sunny skies at 10:00 today. It lasted about as long as a winning ride on a Champion Bull.
The Sandpoint Lions Club started this egg scramble tradition in the early 1400′s or sometime back. After all they’ve been behind a lengthy list of community events since 1953. The long anticipated egg fetching event was under clear skies & pleasant temperatures for the first time in years.
Special thanks for Kari & Joe Johnson who own Sandpoint Dental Cosmetics for providing the dental swag bags for the kiddies. Kari was so excited that she hustled over to volunteer for the 2012 event.
We can all show our appreciation to the Lions Club by purchasing RAFFLE TICKETS for the big 4th of July party in Sandpoint. If you really understood how many sheer hours these committed volunteers and community boosters spend hawking tickets … you would buy one every day.
Imagine if one outta four people watching the parade go by or cramming the beach for the fireworks bought just one ticket? Awesome potential, right?
I had another terrific year at the exceptional egg hunt. I missed my Assistant Bunny. Not just for the memories we make togedder. I also realized after I departed, did my radio show on K102 Country & drove home …
Frankly, this suit is getting a bit warm so it’s time for this bunny to hunt down some help shedding his furry skin. You would think with more than one lucky foot it wouldn’t be a problem, right?
The pictures on my Facebook page along with albums of past years. They are free. Enjoy. And remember … don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
