Richmond Area Guide to Community Events

Here are some of the MARCUMsold Team's favorite things to do in-and-around Richmond, KY!

What: Berea College Campus Easter Egg Hunt

Where: Berea College, 101 Chestnut St, Berea

When: Saturday, April 20th, 2019 from 10AM – 1PM

Details:  This year, the Alumni Relations Office is again partnering with the Non-Traditional Student Program to host our third Berea College Campus Easter Egg Hunt at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 20. All children of students, staff, faculty and alumni are welcome. Join us on the Campus Quad for this event! But if it rains, we'll just move the fun to the Ground Floor of the Alumni Building.

When planning our first egg hunt a few years ago, we didn't realize that the 1,000 eggs our students lovingly filled with candy all week would disappear within the first few minutes.

Our beautiful campus quad, with its many trees and hiding places, proved to be the perfect landscape for this fun-filled morning. Dozens of families from the Berea College campus community attended last year, and this year we anticipate even more.

Help us make our egg hunt last a little longer this year ;)

 - If you would like to contribute plastic egg shells and candy separately, our Alumni Relations and non-trad students will be working all week to prepare them.
 - If you choose to stuff and prepare eggs yourself, be sure to use a piece of clear tape to secure each egg.
Or, if you choose to order eggs and candy online, ship them to Berea College Alumni Relations | CPO 2203 | Berea, KY 40404.
Please drop eggs and candy by the Alumni Relations Office (Alumni Building) by 5 p.m. Fri., April 12, 2019.

To help us better plan our event, please RSVP (Click on TICKETS) to let us know if you can come, if you can contribute eggs or candy, or both!

Thank you, Berea Alumni, for your continued support of your alma mater and our students! If you have any questions, email [email protected] or call (859) 985-3104.
