Freeman Businesses Welcome Halloween Scavenger Hunt Participants

The Freeman Community Development Corporation, in collaboration with member businesses, is again sponsoring a Halloween Scavenger Hunt from 3:30-5:30 PM on Monday, October 31.

Kids in costume and accompanied by a parent are invited to visit participating businesses for a treat and some great deals. Kids who have their passport form stamped by 12 of the participating businesses can drop off the completed forms - including the child's name and phone number - at Vintage Vault Floral & Fashions, 394 S. Main Street, by 6 PM on Halloween. Those passports will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win $10 of Freeman Bucks, certificates that can be used just like cash at any Freeman business. Five winners will be chosen from those entered.
