Crosslake Fall Frolics to feature scavenger hunt
CROSSLAKE -- Stores and restaurants throughout Crosslake are participating in the 2002 Crosslake Fall Frolics.
Events will include a decorating contest, and a chance to win a $100 savings bond by participating in the first Fall Frolics scavenger hunt.
As part of the scavenger hunt, each participating business will have a specified item hidden within their place of business. The item will be different at each business (themed around the business type) but all will include the store's name on the item.
When people find all of the items on the scavenger hunt list, they must take them to one of the Fall Frolics drop-off sites -- Lake Country Crafts and Cones, Judy's House of Gifts or Stone Creek Crafts and Supplies -- and complete a registration form for the drawing.
Winners will be selected from all registered scavenger hunters. Four winners each will receive a $100 savings bonds. Others will win gift certificates from the participating Crosslake area businesses.
Businesses participating in this year's scavenger hunt include: Aunt Bea's Pantry, Crosslake Drug, Daggett Brook Clothing Co. and Hallmark, Judy's House of Gifts, Lakes Area Gallery and Frame Shoppe, Lakes Country Crafts and Cones, Main Stream, Moonlite Square, North Wedge Greenhouse and Garden Gate Shop Gift Shop, Northland Radio Fence, People Antiques, Riverside Inn, Stone Creek Craft Supplies, Susan's Top Drawer and the Great Indoor Furniture Co.
