Swink Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt SECO News seconews.org Caitlyn Hanagan Hansen and Matt Harris with the Swink Lions Club got their Annual Easter egg hunt underway Saturday morning at Reynolds Park in Swink.

Hansen took a moment to talk about the club's longstanding tradition. She said the Swink and Cheraw Lions Clubs worked together to stuff 1,500 plastic eggs with candy, then they each took half for their respective events. According to Hansen it has been several years since the clubs put the candy inside of plastic eggs, which was a return to tradition. 

There were also several golden eggs hidden containing dollar bills.

One little girl said that she hoped to find a golden egg so she could use the money on a new pair of boots.

Great community service organizations like the Swink Lions Club make Southeast Colorado a great place to live. Many thanks to the club for hosting quality events for our children like the annual Easter egg hunt.
