Lakemont Lions Club to offer household backyard Easter Eggstravaganza

Club will hide eggs, or you can pick them up and hide them yourself

The Lakemont Lions Club announced its second annual Easter Eggstrava-ganza Project, a service for local families that doubles as a club fundraiser during the Easter season.

For families registering for the service, Lakemont Lions Club members will place filled Easter eggs in the family yard the evening before, so that eggs are in-place for children’s discovery and delight on Easter morning.

The plastic eggs will contain items such as small candy treats (those ordering can specify no peanuts or no chocolate), discount coupons to local businesses, coins and small prizes. Each egg will be taped to secure the contents.

Eggs can be ordered at 40 eggs for $25. Additional eggs are 10 for $10. Eggs can be ordered by calling Club Secretary Mary Camberg at 932-2286 or emailing msclinen@aol

.com. Send check or money order (made payable to Lakemont Lions Club) to 109 21st Ave., Altoona PA 16601. All orders must be placed by April 4. After placing and paying for an order, families will be given a door hanger. By 8 p.m. April 11, the family will place the door hanger on the front door, pulls drapes, closes blinds and curtains, and Lakemont Lions bunnies will do the rest.

Families with pets must be sure that they are secure. Any pet droppings must be removed from the yard, as the delivery team is not interested in finding those surprises. If not picked up before team arrival, the delivery may be cancelled without refund.

For families residing in apartments or having very small yards, egg orders can be picked up for self-scattering or hiding as the family wishes. Such orders can be picked up between 6 and 8 p.m. April 9 at the former St. John’s School cafeteria, 309 Lotz Ave., Altoona, and must also be ordered by April 4.

The Lakemont Lions Club welcomes new members.

Information on joining Lakemont Lions Club is available by calling Membership Chairperson Nelda Hazlett at 330-9440.
