Summer Scavenger Hunt (August 7 - 31)Handprint Tree

In August we are doing a Summer Scavenger Hunt along Main Street! Some businesses along Main Street have put up special signs in their windows facing the sidewalk. Get a Summer Scavenger Hunt Map from the library or on our website, walk along Main Street, write down each letter and figure out the secret message that they spell out! Return your completed message to Walker Memorial Library by September 1 to be entered into a prize raffle. Scavenger hunt starts on Monday, August 7th.

Please do not go into the businesses unless you are buying something from them. All the signs face outside towards the sidewalk, so you don’t have to go in to be able to see the letter and write it down.

Thanks so much to the businesses participating: Shine Salon, The Swanson Group, Hub Furniture, Ragged Coast Chocolates, Portland Pie, Bloom Consignments, Blaze’s Burgers, Fajita Grill, Full Court Press, Richie’s Ribeye, and The Mills Barbershop.
