A morning chill gave way to a spectacular Sunday for Penn College’s annual Wildcat Egg Hunt, which attracted more than 100 children from infancy to age 10 – along with about 120 parents and guests. Chet Beaver, coordinator of veteran and military services, said the Omega Delta Sigma veterans fraternity filled about 3,500 eggs over the past few weeks, then spent about three hours “hiding” them around The Victorian House on Sunday morning. Snacks were donated by campus veterans and Dining Services, two groups that have been involved for all four years of the popular event.
