• The Lakeview Area Public Library has organized an Alternative Easter Egg Hunt. The scavenger-style activity runs through March 31, ending with prize drawings for registered participants ages birth to 10 years old. Local supporters and business are providing gift certificates and coupons as prizes.
The activity will be managed by an online program and parents need to register their children at lakeviewreads.readsquared.com
Registered participants will be able to access clues to locations throughout the community and then hunt for posters placed in the windows of those offices and businesses in the Lakeview area. Children will enter that code clue to their account. Each correct code entered will earn points, which will be applied to random prize drawings.
Organizers hope that the event will provide some holiday fun in a safe way as an alternative to large gatherings.
