Schroon Lake The Easter Bunny will visit Schroon Lake this weekend.
The rare hare will be in town to assist the Schroon Lake Lions Club with its annual sale of Easter Bunnies.
The bunny and sale will be at the Schroon Lake Grand Union Saturday and Sunday, March 31 and April 1.
“The Easter Bunny will be around on and off throughout the weekend,” said Lion Dennis D’Amico. “It will give children an opportunity to meet with the bunny.”
The chocolate bunnies are $4 each and are available in milk chocolate and white chocolate. The proceeds benefit the Lions Club annual scholarship fund.
The Schroon Lake Lions Club has also announced the winners of its annual Peace Poster contest. An international contest, this year’s poster event attracted 350,000 entries with the theme of “Children Know Peace.”
Joseph Foote was the Schroon Lake winner, and received a cash prize and congratulations at a Lions meeting recently.
Lindsay Palmer and Ashley McCoy, whose posters earned honorable mention, also received awards from the Schroon Lake Lions.
“I was greatly impressed by the interest and participation of the Schroon Lake students,” said D’Amico, chairman of the Peace Poster contest. “Our members have been consistently pleased with the enthusiasm, thoughtfulness and creativity of all the young people who have participated. The Schroon Lake Lions are also deeply appreciative for the guidance and inspiration provided the students by their art teacher Brie Roscrans.”
