Omega Psi Phi fraternity is hosting its third annual Easter egg hunt from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 7 at Sherlock Park.

Children between the ages of 3 and 11 can participate and should bring their own baskets to collect part of the 1,000 eggs the fraternity is supplying.

"Past Easter egg hunts have been great," Lamar Moore, Omega Psi Phi president, said. "This hunt gets the whole city of Cookeville involved, because Tech is the center of everything that happens in Cookeville. This hunt is a great way for kids involved in our city, since there are not a lot of Easter egg hunts held around this area."

The hunt, free and open to the public, is a part of various events Omega Psi Phi is hosting for students and the community.

April 2 there will be a movie night at the Black Cultural Center. A step show performance is scheduled for the following night on South Patio. April 4 there is a forum to raise awareness about Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old black Florida resident who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman.

"Tech football players will be helping out at the event on Saturday, as well as a few campus organizations," Moore said. "This is an opportunity for our chapter to give back to the community and for the kids participating to meet new people.

"We want every to come out this week and have fun with the Q's."
