Thank you, Rifle businesses, for the wonderful support you gave The Rifle Lions Club for its 81st annual Easter Egg Hunt. It turned out to be a sunny, beautiful day with many children participating. Three boys, and three girls went home with a new bicycle and helmet. Three boys and three girls received a big Easter basket filled with toys and candy. All went home with candy and plastic eggs with a treat inside.

Thank you to the Rifle Park and Recreation Department, Boy Scout Troop 223, and to the Fire department for bringing its truck to show the children while they waited for the event to start.
