AND…. A special opportunity to celebrate Easter, have fun, and play with kids, RIGHT HERE ON CAMPUS! 8th Dimension is going to host its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 3rd for children from the surrounding community. At 11:30am, parents and children (many clad in bunny outfits or wearing bunny ear headbands) gather together in Founders Great Hall for some refreshments and arts & crafts with Haverford student volunteers. While the children decorate their own Easter egg bags with stickers, markers and glitter, Haverford student volunteers hide the Easter eggs. There are two hunts: one on Lloyd Green for kids ages 2-4, and one behind Barclay Hall for kids ages 5-10. None of this would be possible without the help of Haverford student volunteers. 8D’s annual Easter egg hunt is definitely a favorite of both Haverford student volunteers and children from the community alike!
Remember, just e-mail email@example.com for more info on any of these opportunities. And join our facebook group!!
Hope to see you soon!
