The 25th year of the American Legion Kids Walk & Scavenger Hunt fundraiser for our kids at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center was held on April 9 at 336 Main Street, Old Saybrook and covered the area of North Cove, Cromwell Place, Church Street, and Main Street.
Walking and looking for items on the scavenger hunt was a novel idea. While we were walking, we forgot about tired feet and sore toes. Instead we found six lions, the Frank Stevenson Monument, a mail box with Paul Revere riding a horse, a sign for Cyr Drywall, two corner swimming pools, the smallest house, the Bird Sanctuary, Previews, Merrill Hall, and even a dog leash in a tree. Only one person had all the questions right (Janelle Gorecki) and two only missed one, the dog leash in the tree: David Kirpas and Eileen Perron.
Thanks go to walkers and volunteers from Deep River. Thanks especially go to Lillian Beardsley of Deep River for her efforts to have the most pledges.
