MVC students of the Non-Profit Leadership Alliance (formally American Humanics) recently stuffed 15,000 plastic eggs with candy for an Easter egg hunt at the Indian Foothills Park for local children, ages 2-14. The MVC students are members of a class instructed by Shawn Terryberry, assistant professor of Nonprofit Management.
The Marshall Parks and Recreation is putting on the annual Easter Egg Hunt to give local children a fun activity and bring the community together.
Ashalyn Whitaker, Business and Technology coordinator for Marshall Parks and Recreation, said that 15,000 eggs are “a lot to stuff, but worth it for the children.”
There will be two hunts on Saturday, April 12. The first will be at 10 a.m. at the Indian Foothills Park and the second will be the Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt at 8:30 p.m. at the Skate Park, located just below Indian Foothills, for ages 11-14. Participants should bring their own flashlight. There is no cost for participants in either hunts.
