The service group presented scholarships to two Muskego High School students who hope to help others as well.
The Muskego Lion's Club awarded to Muskego High School seniors Monday night with their Robert Kreuser and David Salentine scholarships. Natalie Radloff and Sam Frasher were each given $750 awards by the service organization, which is active in assisting those who are sight or hearing impaired through their eyeglass and hearing screening programs. Frasher said he is entering the pre-med program at UW-Madison in fall, in hopes of eventually becoming a dentist. Radloff is also eyeing the medical field, and will start at Marquette University in their physical therapy program. Awards are given yearly by the organization to any high school senior from Muskego.

Annual Easter Egg Hunt brings out the warmest temps of spring, as well as hundreds of candy-seeking kids in Muskego's Veterans Park, courtesy of the Lion's Club.
If you were to compare the weather from last year to this year for holding an Easter egg hunt, you might wrinkle your nose, but compared to what March has brought us this year, the 49th Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Muskego Lion's Club couldn't have been nicer. Organizers once again strew about 400 pounds of candy throughout the woods at Veteran's Memorial Park to help fill the baskets for hundreds of kids, some of whom were just learning to walk. For the time and effort Lion's volunteers put into the event, which included meeting the Easter Bunny, a bike raffle and lunch, it only took a few minutes for every last piece of candy to be picked up.

Muskego Lion's Club serves up breakfast and the opportunity to tell Santa what's on your list.
The 39th annual Breakfast with Santa returned to Muskego High School's cafeteria, and about 1,000 people turned out to enjoy a warm stack of pancakes, sausage and a visit with Santa. The Muskego Lion's Club sponsored the event, calling it a community service project, but for those who attended, they just called it a good time. If your little one got a chance to share their Christmas list, add it to the photo gallery along with a caption.

Saturday, December 1, 2012
It's an annual tradition that often doesn't get enough mention, but the Muskego Lions Club again collected donations of non-perishable food and cash to feed Muskego families. According to Lion Terri Zebron, this Thanksgiving saw the delivery of boxes of food to 30 families, including turkey, pumpkin pie, milk and rolls as well as other donations. The boxes of food were brought by Lion volunteers on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, but if you feel you missed out on an opportunity to help, Zebron said it's not too late. "We have 32 families on the list for Christmas," she said. "The Christmas deliveries using those donations will be on Saturday, Dec. 22nd." Donations will be accepted and any questions on what's needed or where to bring …

The sounds of jazz at Idle Isle Park and barking in Schmidt Park could be a possibility, and the Lions withdraw their Lakefest for this summer.
(Editor's note: generally, we preview meeting stories earlier in the day to give readers ample opportunity to review, but an agenda was not available until Monday morning - my apologies for the late notice) Less than a couple weeks away from the opening of the new Island Ice Cream shop at Idle Isle Park, and owner Kristin Formolo is ready with a new proposal for potential musical accompaniment. The Parks and Recreation Board will hear a new idea for putting a regular feature at Idle Isle for jazz and similar music throughout the summer. Formolo had hinted at such an idea when she first came before the board to open an ice cream shop in the pavilion in the park, and now has a more formal offer to present. From jazz to dogs: the board will …

Lion's Club brings a welcome slice of community at its annual Easter Egg hunt, now in its 48th year.
"Go to the middle, because everyone looks for the candy right in front of them," said one wise 9-year-old girl. Another said the best strategy for collecting eggs was to come prepared: bring a big basket. Framed by near-perfect weather under a clear sky, the tots took to the lawn and woods by Veteran's Memorial Park on Saturday to hunt for the not-so-elusive Easter eggs that were strewn about by volunteers with the Muskego Lion's Club. Lion Rob Kurudza said the event, which the club considers a service project, is completely dependent on the weather and he was grateful for the sunshine. An estimated 300 bags of candy were used to fill the baskets of hundreds of children, age 2 to 10. Along with the noontime hunt, the crowd could grab a …
