The staff at Lincoln Community Center and volunteers from Troy Rotary hailed the annual Easter Egg Hunt as another success on Saturday, April 4, 2015. An estimated 200 children, aged 2-12, took less than 30 minutes to find all the hidden eggs and visit with the Easter Bunny (pictured) on the sunny afternoon. Two children found eggs that earned them extra prizes for the hunt.
This annual event is one of many programs offered to area children through the partnership between Lincoln Community Center and Troy Rotary. In the past year, Rotary, and the Troy Rotary Foundation, purchased printers and printing supplies for school children to use in the Center’s classroom to complete homework and school assignments. Area youth continue to make use of new basketball equipment that replaced worn out rims, hoops and backboards last August. Students had all the necessary supplies to start the 2014-15 school year when they filled up their backpacks during the annual “Back to School Bash” hosted at the Center. Lincoln Community Center and Troy Rotary continue to find ways to help provide area families with safe activities and support educational goals.

Rotarians, and the Troy Rotary Foundation, support several community projects each year. More than $11,000 in community aid and scholarships was distributed during the 2013-14 Rotary year. Follow the club’s activities on their Troy Rotary Club Facebook page.
