Bingle said Bronston had reached out to the campus several years ago seeking volunteers to help with the event and the ELC became involved. Also helping with the coordination with the event is Jerry Martin, the ELC’s executive director, and ELC specialist Jessica Ashe.
“They’re doing all the legwork so they can enjoy the event this year,” Bingle said. “They’re phenomenal. They just came back from Gatlinburg, Tenn., where they did an alternative spring break helping to rebuild houses after the November 2016 fires.”
The Derrico family Easter egg hunt is set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Douglass Park. More than 22,000 Easter eggs will be spread throughout the park. CONTRIBUTED
