Are you looking for something fun and competitive to do over break? Join TPD for an Officer Waffles Scavenger Hunt! Simply find and take photos of 15 safety items listed on the checklist that will be provided when you register.
Easy, right? The catch is the hunt must be completed and photos submitted online between April 21 and April 23, and all items must be located within the town of Tewksbury. Once registered at the above link, you will be invited to the event. There is no age limit, however, a partner and/or transportation could be very helpful for young hunters. The first five submissions received with all 15 pictures (verified by committee) win bragging rights, a visit with Officer Waffles himself and a limited-edition challenge coin.
Winners will be notified via email.
Alternative House, a shelter for people affected by domestic violence, is holding a calendar raffle. Drawings will begin May 1, and you can see all the prizes here. Entries are $20 and may be purchased online. All names will be re-entered to win if pulled, and you will be notified via email or phone if you have won a prize. The grand end-of-month giveaway is a $500 AmEx gift card, but no prize is worth less than $25.
All gift cards can be mailed, or Team Carnation will do a personal drop-off! Proceeds go to support the survivors of domestic violence that Alternative House serves.
