The Lions Clubs of California received correspondence from the Lions Clubs International Foundation acknowledging the contributions made by the clubs for the Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief. Also, the LCIF website featured a picture of some California Lions raising funds for the relief effort.
The Anderson Lions are proud to have made a contribution.

And then the Sun came out

As soon as the Anderson Lions began to put the colored eggs out for the egg hunt this morning it started to drizzle. Then within minutes it was raining steadily. It continued for about a half hour before letting up. By 15 minutes before the 9:00am start time the rain had stopped so the fun could begin.
It only takes minutes. The children make fast work of finding the eggs.

Parents are allowed to assist the Toddlers.

Some even come in costume. Is that an "Easter Bear?'

The prelude

Sunday is the annual egg hunt the Anderson Lions have been sponsoring since all the way back to 1957.

There have been a number of different ranges to boil the eggs... some bigger, and fancier pots, too.
The members have found they can stay busy...
...or rest and socialize...
...or even daydream.

We were ready

These two, Melanie and Sharon, weren't the only members who manned the food fair booth at the convention on Friday evening. There are more photos at the Facebook page.

Some of us came home tired. Some of us came home rested.

This week is Convention Week

The Anderson Lions are excited about attending the Lions District 4-C1 Annual Convention at Corning. We're all ready for the Food Faire on Friday evening and the Parade of Banners Saturday morning. We'll see what else develops.
Of more immediate importance is the regular meeting tonight at El Mariachi.
