 The Hamel Lions hosted their annual “egg hunt” April 19. Drier than last year, hundreds of children and adults visited the Hamel Community Center for an early afternoon of games, treats and visiting with the Easter Bunny before lining up for the big hunt at 1 p.m. Those who found golden eggs were able to take bikes, scooters, gift cards and other prizes home with them.
