West Kaua‘i Lions Club host Easter fun in Kekaha

KEKAHA — According to Lion Eric Nordmeier of the West Kaua‘i Lions Club, the annual Easter Egg Project brought out nearly a hundred participants ages 1 through 12 years old on Sunday to the Kekaha Faye Park and Neighborhood Center Complex, or more commonly known as the Kekaha ball park.

The young energetic group of keiki scrambled to find more than 150 eggs, including some plastic ones that were prepared by Jackie Wong Renaud. Renaud also provided sandwich donations and more.

“The West Kaua‘i Lions Club actually teamed up with the Salvation Army, Hanapepe Corps who donated more than 12 boxes of toys,” Nordmeier said. “Each participant was able to receive at least two toys for free.”

“The Kekaha community E ola Mau donated four bicycles that (were) given away,” Nordmeier said. “The Kekaha Agriculture Association donated cookies. Also helping with the morning fun event were the Scouts of America, Kalaheo troop and the Waimea High School Leo Club.”

The West Kaua‘i Lions Club extends its appreciation to the many hands that contributed to the Easter happiness of many people

The Easter Egg Project started as a West Kaua‘i Lions project many years ago in Hanapepe with Coach Lion Richard Ueoka being the chair. During the early 2000s, Hanapepe Town hosted several Easter Egg projects by different entities, allowing the WK Lions Club to move its event to Kekaha.
