Egg-cellent Easter Egg Hunt Enjoyed by Hundreds

3600 boiled and colored eggs later…

Saturday,  extensive preparations were made for the Lions Club 54th Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday. Lifetime local Larry Shipley delivered 300 dozen eggs to the Lions Club.

Per Larry, “Model dairy sells them to Lions Club every year for cost. I donate my time and take eggs to Lions Club and help boil them and color. It takes 3 to 4 hours. Then we let them store eggs in my refrigerated trailer overnight. We do around 3600 eggs. I have been helping out for years.”


This is quite a production to bring smiles to the faces of children, their families, friends and other locals on Easter.

The Yerington/Mason Valley Fire District attended with a fire engine, ambulance, and the ever-popular Sparky.

Easter Bunny was hugged and adored by children and even some grown-up children!

Areas for 3 age groups were arranged: Veteran’s Park for 0-2 years of age; Reviglio Field for 3-4 year olds; and Buck Aiazzi Field for 5-6 year olds.

Pizen Switch Times thanks everyone for putting up with the photography. And THANK YOU to Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt Chairman Michael Perumean; Lions Club volunteers, their spouses and cubs; Yerington/Mason Valley Fire District Volunteers; Sparky; the Easter Bunny; Model Dairy; AND Larry Shipley (and anyone else contributing to this event)!

It takes a village, and our village is AWESOME.
