Third Time’s a Charm for Egg Hunt – Just Like the First Two!
The ever-bigger-and-better Wildcat Egg Hunt was held Saturday afternoon on campus, the third straight year for the event … AND the third straight year for beautiful weather. Representatives of the Omega Delta Sigma veterans fraternity spent the past week’s evenings filling 3,500 eggs with candy and toys, and eight of the Easter Bunny’s dedicated helpers spent four hours on Saturday setting up the event and hand-placing those goodies on the field of play. The event drew an estimated 125 preteen children of students, faculty and staff. Much of the candy was donated by Penn College employees; refreshments were provided by Dining Services, the School of Business & Hospitality, and Frito-Lay.

Thousands of treats await the starting signal …
… and the fun that ensued!

Strategies vary among young “old hands,” ranging from the Costumed Crouch …
… to the Hoodie Sprint (patent pending).
