Students Fill 10,000 Eggs for Community Easter Egg Hunt
04.09.14 |
 Lebanon Valley College will host its fifth annual Easter Egg Hunt for community members at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 13. The event, to be held on practice fields just north of the main campus, is free and open to the public. In addition to games and a petting zoo before and after the hunt, the Easter Bunny will make a special appearance at the event and will be available for pictures.

LVC students will hide the eggs on the field in the hours shortly before the start of the event. Because the hunt will commence promptly at 2 p.m., community members are asked to arrive between 1:30 and 1:50 p.m. Children who attend will be divided into three different age groups: 0–3, 4–8, and 9–12. Parking will be available near the LVC Sports Center not far from the practice fields. In the event of heavy rain or severely inclement weather, the event will be cancelled.

Members of the student organization Servants of Christ have coordinated with volunteers from other student organizations to fill approximately 10,000 plastic eggs. The eggs contain a variety of small candies, stickers, tattoos, candy bracelets and necklaces, and verses of scripture.

"The students have added several games and the petting zoo in anticipation of another significant turn out this year," commented Rev. Paul Fullmer, who serves as chaplain at the College and is the director of community service. "More than 40 student have already spent several hours organizing candy, cutting up rolls of stickers, and filling the eggs with items appropriate for the three age groups. They greatly enjoy it."

Fullmer estimates that more than 1,000 community members gathered for each of the past hunts at the College, bringing more than 400 children with them.

Servants of Christ is the service arm of "Christian Life at LVC," a collaboration of Christian organizations at the College. The group aims to witness to the community and campus through service. Other activities sponsored by the group include Operation Christmas Child, for which they wrap nearly 500 shoeboxes and fill them with toys. The group also organizes service trips during the winter break and at the end of the academic year. Servants of Christ also organizes a Valentines Day dance for a local senior center.
