Support for Rifle Lion’s Club Easter egg hunt

The Rifle Lion’s Club extends a big thank you to our town businesses for their support of our 82nd annual Easter egg hunt.

A special thank you to our major sponsors: Columbine Ford, Gold Star Realty and Colorado River Engineering.

Thank you to other businesses contributing funds: Alpine Bank, Dalby, Wendland & Co., American Family Insurance, B & B Plumbing, Bank of Colorado, Preceptor Beta Kappa, Rifle Truck and Trailer, Rifle Works, State Farm Insurance, Stuver & LeMoine, Town and Country Veterinarian, Wal-Mart, A & P Lambert, and Weiss & Associates.

The event started with 16 children receiving a new bike helmet donated by the Battlement Auxiliary. Next, three boys and three girls received a big Easter basket filled with toys and candy, two baskets from the Grand River Gift Shop and four baskets from Dalby, Wendland & Co. Then three very excited boys, and girls went home with a new bicycle and helmet from Gold Star Realty.

Everyone went home with candy and plastic eggs with a treat inside.
