The bunny hop

“But it’s not Easter yet!” insisted three-year-old Kate Waddell ’32, as she wriggled in her seat, frantically searching for the Easter Bunny she had been promised yesterday morning.

The off-date event Kate was waiting for the Dayton Alumni Chapter Easter Egg Hunt, held yesterday from 2-4 p.m., where sugar dusted cookies, sparkling fruit punch and coloring crafts held kids captive for the first hour, just long enough to get everyone signed in and drop off their school supply donations, and for the Easter Bunny to hop up the stairs to the Kennedy Union Ballroom. The line to take pictures with the bespectacled bunny trailed down the edge of the ballroom, quickly winding down as the toddler attention spans expired.

Unfortunately, the original, weather-permitting event location had to be changed, but the indoor plan was no more disappointing to the children than not being the one to find the golden egg, which ensured a lucky few a special surprise of the stuffed and fluffy variety after the hunt was over. Golden egg or not, grassy field or hardwood floor, everyone got candy and everyone left happy.

There was coloring, cookies, candy, kids and bunnies; the perfect recipe for a week-before-Easter alumni family celebration.
