SOU staff dyes 3,000+ eggs for hunt

Ashland, Ore., — The 58th Annual Easter Egg Hunt is this Easter Sunday in Ashland.

This year 3,000 eggs will be hidden in Lithia Park for the kids, but it’s no small feat to prepare that many eggs for the big hunt.

The Rotary Club of Ashland was able to get 3,000 eggs donated for the hunt, and with the help of the dining staff at Southern Oregon University, they were able to get them dyed as well.

All 3,000 of them, while rotating between 5 colors.

SOU dining marketing director, Katie Bergantino says, “they started this morning probably at about 7 o’clock, it’s tedious but I do think they make it fun.”

They’ve been helping to prepare the eggs for Ashland’s biggest hunt for at least 7 years.

The Ashland Rotary Club dropped off all 255 dozen eggs at SOU’s dining hall on Thursday, and will pick them up on Sunday morning dyed and ready to go.

The Easter egg hunt starts at 1pm on Sunday near the tennis courts at Lithia Park. There are five age groups for kids 2 to 10 years old.
