After talking with several local businesses, the Lewis County News decided to team up with Amy Smith of Boss Hoggs BBQ and start a community scavenger hunt. This will be a community event with the grand prize being a $50 Visa gift card. Now here is the fun part, we are asking you to participate by going into local businesses.
We wanted to do something to help the local businesses but we also wanted to offer something fun for students and parents during distance learning. Here is what we are doing:
Amy Smith will be creating clues, she has done many scavenger hunts in the Winlock area and this time she is expanding to include Toledo and Vader, this is going to be fun. Once you figure out the clue, go to the business and make a purchase. After you make a purchase, you will be given your next clue. The idea is to get everyone back to shopping locally. It doesn't mean you have to buy a large item, it's just to get you with your students out and about. Remember, the grand prize will be $50 to spend anyway you would like.
We have created a Facebook page for you to upload your pictures, it's called South Lewis County Scavenger Hunt. Please take a picture and post it on the page, we may use one of the pictures in the paper. It's important to remember, this is for all three towns to participate in. The clues will be in each city, that way if you live in Toledo, you get to come to Winlock. If you live in Winlock, you will be going to Toledo and Vader. And the best part, each of the businesses will be participating in this fun adventure.
The first clue is: True or False is the question, whether or not you value the answer is up to you.
When you know what the business name is, please go to the business.... And let the fun begin!
Not to fret if you have younger students, we have also included a coloring contest for the students in grades K-5. Grand prize is a $25 gift certificate for the student who is the most creative. Please complete and drop it off at the Winlock Saturday Market, which is open on Wednesday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., or can mail it to The Lewis County News, P.O. Box 10, Winlock, WA 98596.
