MOSCOW, Idaho – Silver and gold eggs await children at the University of Idaho Student Alumni Relations Board annual Alumni and Friends Easter Egg Hunt.

The hunt will take place Saturday, April 3, at 11 a.m. on the University of Idaho Administration Building Lawn, 851 Campus Dr. in Moscow.

“This year the best prizes will be given to those who find the special silver and gold eggs,” said Heather Boni, chair of the event. “I can’t tell you what the prizes are, but they surely will make any child happy!”

Part of SArb's mission is to provide networking opportunities between students and alumni; the event is open to University of Idaho alumni and friends on the Palouse with children ages eight months to 11 years.

Three simultaneous searches, broken down into three age groups, will take place rain or shine.

“Last year, even though it was raining, we still had almost 75 kids running around with smiles and trying to find all the eggs we stuffed with candy,” said Melissa Obermeyer, the 2009 Easter Egg Hunt chair.

SArb members have planned fun games and coloring activities for the children while they count down for the hunt.
