Scavenger hunt planned for Family Day in February

Stamp card, questions, and instructions can be picked up from Hope Regional Library any time on Feb. 7

Hope Early Years is hosting its first annual Family Day Scavenger Hunt in February.

Often dubbed a retirement community, the event aims to increase community awareness about what Hope has to offer children. The Family Day Scavenger Hunt kicks off in time for the provincial holiday on Feb. 10.

“Unless seeking out events and programs is constantly on a person’s radar, it is easy to overlook all that the community does offer,” said Darla Dickinson, coordinator for the Hope Early Years committee.

“We wanted to help parents and children learn about all the fun features our community does have, while providing businesses and organizations a fun platform to market themselves directly to families.”

Parents can pick up their stamp card, questions, and instructions from Hope Regional Library any time on Feb. 7.

They then have one week (or until Valentine’s Day) to visit all the places listed on the stamp.

The drop-off finale will be at the library, where families and children can not only collect their prize for completing the card, but enter to win a grand prize, enjoy entertainment, story time, and refreshments.

Businesses and organizations are welcome to join by contacting Dickinson at ecd@freereinassociates.ca.
