Beautiful Weather For Annual Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt

NEW HAVEN, Mo. - Saturday afternoon the New Haven Lions Club Annual Easter Egg Hunt could not have asked for better weather.  Moms and dads, many of whom can probably remember hunting during their childhood years, were now watching their kids racing to gather as many eggs with hopes of finding the “silver” egg.

What makes New Haven’s Easter egg hunt so unique is the fact that the same two Lions Club members, Mark Zobrist and Tom Lagemann, have been in charge of organizing the event for over the past 30 years.  How many years exactly?  Well, that is a good question because neither Lagemann or Zobrist are 100 percent sure.
