The beautiful new Union campus was the site of the third annual Easter egg hunt for Harker alumni families. Held in March, the event attracted more than 100 attendees, triple the number of participants over previous years.
For many alumni it was their first visit to Harker’s recently acquired third campus, home of the soon-to-be-launched preschool opening this fall, and future permanent site of the lower school.
Some of the alumni who came out for the fun family event are now themselves parents of current Harker students (or soon-to-be Eagles).
Adding to the festive mood were a bounce house and arts and crafts tables complete with child-friendly, make-it-yourself projects, including egg-shaped magnets, bunny masks and color-your-own crowns. A visit by the Easter bunny rounded out the morning.
“It was a wonderful day shared with family and friends,” enthused MaryEllis Deacon, director of alumni relations. “Being on the new campus and watching past generations and future Eagles all together was an added bonus for our special alumni community.”
