|Lebanon Valley College Easter Egg Hunt Hides 10,000 Easter Eggs
Lebanon Valley College will host its fourth annual Easter egg hunt on Sunday, March 24 at 2 p.m. on the practice fields near Arnold Sports Center. The event is free and open to the public. Community members are asked to arrive between 1:30 and 1:50 p.m. Questions can be directed to the office of community service and volunteerism at 717- 867-6135.
Members of the student organization Servants of Christ coordinated with other student volunteers to fill over 10,000 plastic eggs with candies, stickers, tattoos, and verses of scripture.
Children will be divided into three different age groups: 0–3, 4–8, and 9–12 and receive age-appropriate prizes.
“Students spent more than 100 hours organizing candy, cutting up rolls of stickers, and filling the eggs with items appropriate for the three age groups. They are hoping for another significant turn out this year,” said Reverend Paul Fullmer, chaplain at the college and director of community service. Fullmer estimates that more than 1,000 members of the local community gathered for each of the past hunts at the college, bringing more than 400 children with them.
The Easter bunny will also make a special appearance at the event and will be available for photos before and after the hunt.
Parking will be available at the Arnold Sports Center. In the event of heavy rain or severely inclement weather, the event will be cancelled.
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. The group also organizes service trips during the winter break and at the end of the academic year and participates in Operation Christmas Child annually.
