Lions Club assists in annual Easter egg hunt


Sandra Iosue The big job for the Sun Lakes Lions Club


in March was the annual Sun Lakes Easter Egg Hunt and Golf Cart Parade on March 30.


We assisted Cottonwood Country Club’s


Linda Caton and her staff, along with the Rotary Club and Sun Lakes Breakfast Lions Club in fi lling over 2,500 plastic eggs and setting them out in age groups for the children. Lion Floyd Mullen was his usual


“together” self as he lined up all the golf carts for the parade (along with a few convertibles and trucks). Prizes were given to the Best Easter Theme and Non-Easter Themes (1st, 2nd and 3rd) places in each category). Mr. and Mrs. Bunny rode in one


convertible, as did the VIP (Very Important Paraders). Ron Peterson provided musical entertainment along the parade route and “Auntie Sam” drove our own Sun Lakes Lion in a beautifully decorated golf cart. The egg hunt was its usual success; we


took hours fi lling and placing the eggs and the children had them all gathered before some of us knew that the signal had been given to start! One lucky kid in each age group was lucky enough to fi nd the “Golden Egg,”


This lovely little 2-year old found the Golden Egg and won a bunny bigger than she is.


which had a certifi cate inside for a large stuffed bunny. Next year bring your kids and grandkids


down for Easter and let them participate. Egg hunters are ages 0-2 years, 3- 4 years, 5-6 years and 7-8 years. See you all next year! 

Donna Haugland, Publicity The next meeting of the Sun Lakes


Garden Club will be on Tuesday, May 14. The program will be “Succulents and Cactus.”


It will be presented by Steve


Martinez who came to Arizona from New York 37 years ago. He is president of the Central Arizona Cactus and Succulent Society (CACSS). His shop Succulentia is located at the “Farm at South Mountain” and specializes in rare, exotic cacti and succulents


as well as pottery and


other accessories. The website is www. succulentia.com. The April 9 program was “Cooking from


the Garden.” It was presented by Terri Aragon who talked about herbs, fruits and vegetables with tips and secrets to promote a healthy lifestyle. She said that she gardens in raised beds. Her soil is a mixture of half alfalfa and half compost. Because of this mix there is no need to fertilize but make sure the mixture cools. Eggplant, tomatillos


and okra love the heat and grow well all summer. Also in the fall plant seeds as soon as the temperature is below 100 and when the correct temperature for that seed rolls around the seed will sprout. The Sun Lakes Garden Club meets


on the second Tuesday of each month at the Sun Lakes Health Center Community Room. The group gathers for a social time at 9:00 a.m.; the meeting follows at 9:15 a.m. The Sun Lakes Health Center is located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Alma School and Riggs roads in Sun Lakes. The community room is in the southwest corner of the building. Anyone interested in how and what to grow in this area is invited to attend as a guest. If you want more information or are interested in becoming a member of

Sun Lakes Garden Club, contact the club President Marjorie Wright at 480-305-0224 or Vice President Leslie Schleicher at 816- 797-1133. 
