Easter Egg Hunt for the Visually Impaired

Information for 2024 coming soon!

For over twenty years the Mount Prospect Lions Club has partnered this event with the NSSEOs Vision Program and the Telephone Pioneers. Visually impaired children and their siblings search for beeping easter eggs using sound recognition. The large eggs mimick bird sounds as the smaller eggs emit sharp high pitched beeping sounds. Children who needed assistance are helped by Lions Club members as well as members of NSSEO and volunteers from the Telephone Pioneers. Telephone Pioneers are affiliated with Teletype Corporation who were known for the research, development and manufacture of data and record communications equipment, but primarily remembered for the manufacture of electromechanical teleprinters.
