LINGLE – A local woman has created a scavenger hunt around the town of Lingle during the COVID-19 influences social-distancing.
This event is open to all ages from 0-18 and limited to one entry per child each week.
The town-wide scavenger hunt is open to all residents and students of Lingle schools to give kids a chance to have some fun while spending time with their families.
Families who are not a member of the Lingle community or school are welcome to participate in the hunt but are ineligible to win prizes.
“It gives me something to do also,” the organizer, who has asked to remain anonymous, said. “I think it’s important to be involved with your children and do different activities with them and this gets you out talking to them and looking for different things.”
The activities are done just by driving around because all sponsor houses are easily seen from the streets, but if people are wanting to walk around to do it, take precautions.
“Our sponsors would only put stuff in their windows. I have prize sponsors also, which can be a business or individuals.”
New and changing information and the weekly scavenger hunt list can be found on Facebook by searching for “Lingle Scavenger.” New messages will be checked several times daily.
Individuals or groups wishing to become a sponsor can submit a message via the Facebook page. The project is always in need of new sponsors for both houses and prizes.
The event will continue throughout the same timeframe of the recommended social distancing.
