Why? Making Sense of God's Will

By Pastor David Poe

What makes New Haven’s Easter egg hunt so unique is the fact that the same two Lions Club members, Mark Zobrist and Tom Lagemann, have been in charge of organizing the event for over the past 30 years.  How many years exactly?  Well, that is a good question because neither Lagemann or Zobrist are 100 percent sure.
