2023 Upcoming Events

25th Annual Egg Hunt RETURNS! - April 2, 2023 3-5pm

This event is FREE and open to the LONA Community, but we ask that you please consider making a donation of $5-10 per child to LONA. Donations are accepted here via PayPal.

This contribution will enable volunteers to purchase candy, stickers and plastic eggs for the 2023 hunt and future egg hunts.

If you have plastic eggs that you no longer need, we can re-use them each year. One of our board members is collecting them. Please send us an email if you have some to donate.
