2018 Beeping Easter Egg Hunt

Beeping Easter Egg Hunt

 

The eighth annual “Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for the Blind and Visually Impaired” will be held Saturday at Reynolda Village from 10 a.m. until noon.

The Easter eggs — specially-designed by the Winston-Salem Police Department — emit beeps to allow visually impaired children and adults to participate in a traditional Easter egg hunt.

The beeping Easter egg hunts were first held in 2011 and this year the police department’s Hazardous Devices Unit has made more than 1,100 beeping eggs for hunts around the country.

The police department will hold a second egg hunt for the visually-impaired April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Governor Morehead School in Raleigh.

“We were able to watch adults as ‘young’ as 94-years-old enjoy their very first egg hunt and become a child again for a few hours,” a statement from the police department read. “These moments are the reason we do what we do.”

Phase 2: 2018 Camp Dogwood Refurbishing Project

2018-Spring-Volunteer-Week-Reservation-Corrected

“Dear Lions of North Carolina,

Each summer, North Carolina, Inc.’s Camp Dogwood for the Blind and Visually Impaired serves over 700 adult campers with blindness or visual impairments. When the Camp Dogwood facility is not being used by our wonderful campers, the property manages as a meeting and retreat center for church groups, hobby groups, family reunions, and so much more. As with any lodging/event space business, maintenance is up the upmost importance due to natural wear and tear along with upholding topnotch safety for patrons.

With 58 rooms (116 beds) spread across the 3 lodges, 2 duplexes, and the Stickley Building, we call upon the Lions for support with the 2018 Camp Dogwood Refurbishing Project. In order to maintain the safety of our camper and offer a sought after space for groups, all rooms on the property need to be restored and restocked with new items.”

Please see the form above for ways that you can help with the 2018 Camp Dogwood Refurbishing Project.
