Members of Keuka College’s Rotaract Club did their best imitation of the Easter Bunny as they hid colorful plastic eggs in places on Norton Chapel lawn Thursday, March 28.
The club hid the eggs as part of the second annual Easter Egg Hunt.
“We chose to host an Easter egg hunt last year because we wanted to come up with a fun, different, campus-wide activity,” said Alex Morgan, president of the club. “We decided to do it again since it was a success last year, and most people liked Easter egg hunts when they were little. So we figured why not now as well?”
Students, faculty, and staff were invited to scour all corners of the Chapel lawn, in search of the eggs. For every six eggs someone found and turned in to a club member, they received a small bag of candy.
“This year we had two special prizes, a giant chocolate bunny and a large bag of Snickers,” said Morgan, a junior biology major from New Berlin. “The first person to find the special golden egg picked at a prize. After that, the golden egg was hidden again.”
Matthew Williams, a sophomore criminology/criminal justice major from Valley Stream, chose the bunny, while Darrcy Matthews, a junior management major from De Kalb Junction, chose the bag of Snickers.
Rotaract Clubs are Rotary-sponsored service organizations for young men and women ages 18- 30. Students who have taken part in 60 percent of the club’s community service activities, participated in two fund-raisers, and attended at least one campus-wide event are eligible for induction.
