MTSU students offer kids, elders some Good Friday ‘egg-citement’

Some MTSU students will try to make Good Friday an even better Friday for some local youngsters and their elders.

Stephanie Bush

The 26 students of Stephanie Bush’s Aging Health and Development Class will host an Easter egg hunt at 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 18, at Stones River Manor, a senior living community at 205 Haynes Drive in Murfreesboro.

Bush, an instructor in the Department of Human Sciences, said about 200 people attended last year’s event, and seeing the youngsters have so much fun delighted the manor’s residents.

“We’ll be hiding plastic eggs filled with candy on the grounds,” Bush said. “There will be games, refreshments, an inflatable bounce house and a visit from the Easter Bunny.”

A separate area will be set aside for babies and toddlers to hunt eggs with their parents, and activities will be planned for the residents.

The class is an experiential learning opportunity that helps students understand aging, families in later life and program planning and implementation for seniors.
