Local Egg Hunts held Saturday and Sunday

Celebrating Easter in the campus is a chance for students to reflect, enjoy and relax, and now that Easter Sunday is nearly here, colleges and universities across the country are now beginning to get in the holiday spirit by doing their hopping good Easter traditions with the Easter egg hunt.

The Easter egg hunt goes from 10 a.m.to 12 p.m. Saturday.

The events get underway at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 15, with a visit with the Easter Bunny. Also, join the walking challenge for a chance to win a GoPro at the event. More information can be found here.

"We invite kids from the area to come and hunt easter eggs and we have the old timey ways of dying eggs with natural dyes for them to try out, and we have games and stickers, a sack race, running with an egg in a spoon race, and some goodies for them, snacks".
