Public invited to March 24 Easter egg hunt at SMU

WINONA, Minn. — Winona-area children in grade four and younger are invited to attend an Easter egg hunt at Saint Mary’s University from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.

Young Easter-egg hunters should gather at Saint Mary’s park, located behind Saint Mary’s Hall, where fun games will be offered until the egg hunt begins. In the case of bad weather, the event will be held in Gostomski Fieldhouse, located in SMU’s Toner Student Center.

This Easter egg hunt is an opportunity for children to play games, win prizes and enjoy a day on campus. It is modeled after SMU’s annual Halloween Fun Night, which draws more than 700 youth to campus for trick-or-treating each year.

SMU students have planned the community outreach event, which is sponsored by the SMU Office of Residence Life. Several local businesses have also supported the event through donations.
