Easter hunt is a success!

Lions Steve Calhoun and Dennis Deitch chat while parking cars at Raab Park Saturday, April 4, for the annual city Easter Candy Hunt.

Dennis D. and a city worker keep the cars moving.
Patrick Osler headed up the Lions committee.

Leo the Lion (Ginger Shields) was on hand to high 5 those kids who weren't afraid of her.

Many kids were thrilled!
Our club provided $500 in candy and prizes.

Here is one of the "bunnies" tossing candy onto the grass in the 1- and 2-year-old section.

Since the kids were so young, parents and other family members were invited to help out.
We had princesses on hand to brighten up the day.
Nicole Lacey, Sabrina Mai Tucker, Madison Gilmore and Lion Ginger.

Organized chaos.

Some kids understood they should put the candy and eggs in their baskets. Others did not.

A dad holds open his son's bag. The kids were definitely not hurrying.


If a child had an egg, he or she could either 1) keep it, or 2) turn it in for a prize from this bin.

Lions Pat Burch, Ginger and Lynnea Herrmann were on hand to help out too.

Let the hunt begin!

Don't forget about our Easter egg candy hunt at Raab Park (off Caldart Avenue) today at 1 p.m. Leo the Lion will be there, as will other Lions to help you park.

3+ tons of food, $2,465 raised for food bank

Two sisters were delighted to add a spice as their food bank contribution at Safeway March 27.
It was a well-spent two days March 27 and 28 at area grocery stores to help fill up the food bank's shelves. The results: This past weekend the Poulsbo Lions Club & Poulsbo Rotary citywide food drive collected 6,408 lbs of food and $2,465 for Fishline. That's both more food and money than we collected last year, which was the first year. We had 37 Lions helping out, for approximately 120 hours. Special mention goes to Lion Linda Schwind for pulling 4 shifts! It's GRrrrreat to be a Lion!

Ron (Rotary) and Jim Stark start their Friday shift.
