Back on Saturday, September 7, 2019

This fundraising event is held annually. 

This is the second year the club has held the run/walk on the same weekend as Harborfestt on Saturday, September 15th, 2018, the morning before the whaleboat races. 

The name of the 5K Race/Walk is for Andy Neidneg, a long-time competitive marathoner and longtime resident of Sag Harbor. 

We also added "for a Guide Dog" to the title so we could connect the name to the cause,

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019

See our calendar page for the exact date and for the first "GO!" of the event.

Descargar las instrucciones bilingües.

Lions Holly Worwetz and Sarah Boyce are the event co-chair with committee members Lions Bob Falborn and Robert Loesch.

Quiz: What does Mashashimuet mean?


Follow Last Years New Rules!  


The Bunny will arrive at the park delivered by the Sag Harbor Fire Department just before the event starts.

The Bunny will prepare 3,000 multi-colored Eco-friendly eggs that are filled with candy, stickers and Special Coupons. The eggs will be set out in the flat picnic area on the east side of the park in three groups and each age group now has its own start time:

  • 2 to 4 years-old will be the first to go in the top section – in the middle of the two other groups.
  • 5 to 7 years-old will start afterward with a separate "GO!" in the right-hand field, closes to the grandstand.
  • 8 to 10 years-old will be last to go with a separate "GO!" in the left section – next to the tennis courts.

The Easter Bunny asks parents of the 2-4 years old group, that only one adult is allowed on the field holding their child's hand. No other adults are allowed on the field to pick up eggs for their children in any age groups.

Adults running on the field or picking up eggs for their children will
be asked to leave the field.

Don't forget to have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny!
