I knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time. Yes, it was inevitable.

When I received an e-mail from Orange Lion Nick Bencivengo today, I didn’t even have to open it, but I did. Nick is the chairman of the Lion’s Easter Egg Hunt, and with the way things are going lately, It’s clear that an event such as the Hunt, which attracts hundreds of children and adults every year for the past 56 years, would go against the new “no more than 10 person gathering” rule.

The decision came with heavy hearts at the last Lions meeting which was attended by a special guest, the Easter Bunny, who agreed that this was the right decision in order to keep the children and their parents, grandparents, guardians and, of course, the Lions safe and healthy.
