The Webster University Alumni Association held its Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4 on the Quad at the home campus, with sunshine and warming temps making the day even more festive for the hundreds in attendance.

The Easter Egg Hunt has been an annual tradition for the Alumni Office for the last 15 year. “We hid 4 golden eggs–two for the age four and under group, and two for the age 5 and up group,” said Jennifer Jezek-Taussig, associate vice president, Alumni Programs. “The children who found the golden eggs won an Easter basket.”

The Alumni Association welcomed 120 children to the Egg Hunt and sent them home with goodies.

After the egg hunt, children had their photos taken with the Easter Bunny, and enjoyed balloon creations by clown Silly Jilly and Easter-themed snacks.

“We had 120 kids take part in the hunt on Saturday morning,” said Jezek-Taussig. “When you add in all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends, we had well over 350 people on the Quad!” Seeing all the kids grow up from year to year is one of the most enjoyable parts of the event for Alumni Association members. “We have kids come who used to come as babies…and now they are 9 years old!”

Family fun!

Prior to the Egg Hunt, members of the Finance and Administration department helped out by decorating egg baskets with a theme. Children at the Egg Hunt voted for their favorites, then drew ticket numbers to win a basket to take home.

“Finance and Administration gets pretty creative with this,” said Jezek-Taussig. This year’s theme winner was “Frozen,” designed by Karen Shinault of the Bursar’s Office. Other favorites were “Keep Calm and Peep On,” and the “Flying Egg” – which was attached to a kite and placed on a board made to look like an airport runway!
