Family fun at Bayside Park
Colchester Lions Club, in partnership with Colchester Parks & Recreation, sponsored the annual Easter egg hunt at Bayside Park. Children were separated by two age groups: 4 and under hunted Lower Bayside Park, ages 5 -8 hunted Upper Bayside Park. Over 3000 eggs were 'stuffed' 'hidden' and 'found' during this event. The 'Easter Bunny' arrived, giving photo opportunities for the children making memories that will last for a long time. The Colchester Lions Club also hosted its annual food drive for the Colchester Community Food Shelf, collecting just shy of 250 pounds of food, with an undetermined amount of cash donations.
The Colchester Lions Club would like to thank the Colchester High School Honor Society and the Colchester Boy Scout Troop 601 for their assistance over the weekend. The club would also like to thank the St. Michael's Fire and Rescue for having a 'special connection' to the Easter Bunny. Thanks to Colchester Parks and Recreation for their continued support of this great event. Please see Colchester Lions Club Facebook page for more photos.
