On Saturday, March 30, 2024, at 1:00PM, the Tualatin Lions Club will hold their 51st annual Easter Egg Hunt at the lush, green Tualatin Community Park, 8515 SW Tualatin Road, Tualatin, Oregon. The Easter Bunny has already been talking to the Tualatin Lions, making arrangements to be there early for photos with all of the Easter Egg Hunters and their families.

As always, there will be separate hunts for different age groups. Toddlers to 2-year-olds will be in the play area east of the central picnic shelter; 3 and 4-year-olds will be in the field south of the picnic shelter; 5 and 6-year-olds will hunt in deep left field of the softball field and 7 and 8-year-olds will hunt in shallow left field.

A very special addition again this year will be a hunt for visually impaired hunters up to age 8. The Tualatin Lions are partnering with their special friend, Ady Alvarez, and her family to provide beeping Easter Eggs and are looking forward to this great feature as a part of its annual gift to the children of the region.

Every hunter will receive a bag of Easter candy from the Scouts of Troop 530 and 2 hunters from each age group will receive big “special prizes” in return for finding “special eggs”. Troop 530 Scouts and Tualatin Lions can identify those “special eggs”.

The Tualatin Lions will sell fresh popcorn, soda and water. Everything is just $1 and all funds raised go to Lions charitable community projects including school vision screening in the Tigard-Tualatin and Sherwood Schools, eyeglasses and hearing aids for neighbors in need and more. The Lions will also happily accept donations of non-perishable food and cash that will directly go to the Tualatin Schoolhouse Pantry.

This year the Tualatin Lions will be collecting food and cash to support their “Backpack Buddies” program that helps underserved and vulnerable student get nutritious lunches and weekend meals and snacks. The Lions are asking for easy to prepare proteins, like canned spaghetti products, tuna and peanut butter, and easy student snacks like small package crackers and cheese, pretzels, etc. Any cash donations will gladly be accepted.

Families from all over the region are welcome beginning at noon on Saturday, March 30th for photos with the Easter Bunny and fresh popcorn. Egg hunts begin at 1:00PM and everything will go off, regardless of the weather. The Tualatin Lions can be reached at tualatinlions@gmail.com.
