Scurrying scavengers happily greet Wildcat Egg Hunt’s return

Wildcat Egg Hunt 6Penn College’s sixth Wildcat Egg Hunt – bigger than ever, after a two-year pause necessitated by COVID-19 – saw about 120 children scampering about the main campus lawn early Sunday afternoon. “We started filling the 3,500 or so Easter eggs last week,” said Chet Beaver, coordinator of veteran and military services, who has overseen the popular event since it began in 2015.

“We had some help from the Student Veterans Organization, Dining Services and Sigma Pi fraternity.”  Candy was donated by faculty and staff from across campus, as well as by the Alpha Chi honor society, Business Club and the student veterans. Snacks and water were provided by Dining Services and the School of Business, Arts & Sciences. “The Physician Assistant Club was there doing temporary tattoos,” the organizer added. “This was their first time with us, and it was a big hit with the kids.”

The children, divided into three age groups (0-3, 4-7 and 8-10), collected all of the eggs in a half-hour, affirmation that the time was ripe for a reprise. “Everyone told us how happy they were that we were back again,” Beaver said, already looking forward to Wildcat Egg Hunt 7 (and hinting at “some additions” to the event).
