After a couple of challenging years, the Vale Lions are gearing up again for the big hunt – the Lions Easter Egg Hunt, that is.

Children attending the event this Saturday, April 16, will find the grass at Wadleigh Park salted with candies and plastic eggs stuffed with chocolates, coupons and other goodies. There also will be stuffed bunnies and other Easter toys awaiting the youngest hunters.

Adding to the festivities, the Lions Club Lion and the Easter Bunny will be on hand to greet the children and pose for photos, said John Perry, club secretary and chair of this year’s hunt.
