You Are invited to a Scavenger Hunt
Dear Rowland Heights Buckboard Parade friends, supporters, and Participants,
What a rough ride it has been since Covid 19 hit us! We have heard from Los Angeles County that we cannot hold our parade again this year. The Parade Board and Committee brainstormed ideas. To engage our community this year, we’re having a drive-thru Scavenger Hunt in Rowland Heights on October 16, 2021 from 10AM to 2 PM.
A fun event is in the works for those interested in participating. The idea is to help families get out in a safe way, learn information about our community (past and present), discover historical facts and landmarks in Rowland Heights, while having fun participating. More details will be coming as soon as we have finalized the specifics and each point of interest.
Here’s what you need to know: families will stay in their cars and will be provided with a list of designated locations and items to find throughout Rowland Heights, all while learning about fun landmarks and historic facts about the Rowland Heights Community. Participants can also read more history on the QR codes at each site, and get the next clue along the route. Although there will be no charge to participate, we will accept donations and sponsorships, so we are able to cover the costs of this event and host parades in the future.
The Scavenger Hunt will be fun and safe, plus there will be prizes for those who complete the “Hunt”.
For our sponsors, we hope you will support us in any way you can financially, and please encourage your employees to participate. For our participating families and groups, the event is free, but we never refuse financial donations of any size. Keep a look out for information in the months to come. Information will also be on the website and social media.
Please share this with your groups. You will be notified as details are finalized. No form is required to participate but if you would reply back to this email and tell us approximately how many of your families will participate, it will help us prepare.
