ABAC Young Farmers Will Host Easter Egg Hunt for Children on March 10

TIFTON— Nothing signals the arrival of spring quite like a traditional Easter Egg Hunt. Students in the Young Farmers Club at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will bring that tradition around early this year with a community event for children on March 10 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Lakeside Lawn.

An educational scavenger hunt focusing on agricultural commodities begins the day. Children will visit information booths from campus organizations where they will get individual cards stamped for each booth they visit.

“Elementary schools usually do not place emphasis on agricultural education,” Sadie Hobbs, secretary of the ABAC Young Farmers, said. “Our goal is to show children how agriculture plays a significant role in their daily lives.”

After the scavenger hunt, the children will enjoy a light meal followed by an egg hunt for those children who receive the proper number of stamps on their cards. A total of three egg hunts will occur for pee-wee, elementary, and middle school ages.

“Our goal is to be advocates for agriculture while simultaneously representing ABAC,” Hobbs said.

For more information or to RSVP, interested persons can contact Suzanne Bentley, Academic and Career Coordinator, at (229) 391-4815 or sbentley@abac.edu.
