LAKEPORT, Calif. — The Rotary Club of Lakeport is pleased to announce the return of its annual Easter Egg Hunt, a historic event offered to the community for free since 1926.

Even during the last two years, the Rotary Club of Lakeport has provided free Easter events for the community with a drive-through Easter Bunny visit in Library Park in 2020 and an Easter basket giveaway at the Lake County Fairgrounds in 2021.

“We are thrilled to continue a fine Rotary tradition for the benefit of our community,” says Laura McAndrews Sammel, the club’s current president. “After two years of not being able to allow the children and their families out of their cars, it is going to be so fun watching the kids find the eggs!”

This year’s event will take place at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport. The gates will open at 1 p.m.

There will be three fields ready with hidden eggs for the three different age categories: up to 3 years old, 4 to 8 years old, and 9 to 12 years old.

Traditional, dyed eggs and plastic eggs with goodies inside will be available for the kids to find.

Some lucky egg-hunters will also win cash prizes as each field will include one golden egg and two silver eggs.

Also making an appearance this year is the Easter Bunny.

The Bunny will be there to visit with and provide photo opportunities for the children.

The Rotary Club of Lakeport was founded by a group of community-minded people in 1925. The club holds several events each year, such as the drive-through crab feed, to raise funds to invest back into our local and global community.

In recent years, the Rotary Club of Lakeport has built the Community Garden at Hospice Services of Lake County, renovated the showers at the Lake County Fairgrounds and landscaped the new Alternative Education Center at the Lakeport Unified School District.
