Rifle Lions Club Easter egg hunt

The annual Rifle Lions Club Easter egg hunt will be Saturday, March 26, at the Deerfield Park ballfields in north Rifle. There are three age groups: toddlers up to age 3; 4-6; and 7-9. Registration for bikes and Easter baskets begin at 9 a.m.; bikes, helmets and Easter baskets will be given away at 9:45; and the Easter egg hunt for thousands of pieces of candy will begin promptly at 10. If your child finds a piece of candy that is marked with a number, find that number at the participating business in town and they will give your child another prize. This year in addition to marked candy, there are plastic eggs filled with toys and prizes. For more information contact President Karen Andruzak at 625-2779.

In addition to the four Garfield County Libraries that are usually closed on Sundays, the Glenwood Springs and Rifle branches will be closed on Sunday, March 27, in celebration of Easter. Normal hours will resume at 10 a.m. Monday, March 28, for all six libraries.
