LONG SAULT – Clutching baskets or bags, over 140 children participated in the first annual Easter Egg hunt held at Arnold Bethune Park in Long Sault on April 15. Thanks to the work of Lion Lynn White and her team of volunteers from the Ingleside-Long Sault – Lost Villages Lions Club, the event was successful in providing an opportunity for children and adults to have some fun in the sun.

White explained how 500 plastic coloured Easter eggs were placed around the park, with each child given a list detailing the colour as well as number of eggs to collect and return to the registration desk in the parking lot. Once the eggs were returned most participants received a bag of candy to enjoy.

White commented how the park with its splash pad provided a visual reminder of the proposed splash pad in Ingleside which would receive part of the proceeds from the event.
