GI Kiwanis Scavenger Hunt - Saturday, October 5, 2019

 

Thank you to all of the families and friends who participated in the GI Kiwanis Scavenger Hunt 2019!  We hope you enjoyed learning about the Island, interacting with businesses you may not have known about, spending a great day experiencing our community in a new way!


Thank you everyone who sponsored, hosted spots, donated prizes, and volunteered. Without the community support, we wouldn't have had such a fantastic event.

We'd specifically want to thank the following sponsors and prize donors:

  • Island Realty, Inc.
  • Tasty Freeze
  • Grosse Ile Historical Society
  • Century 21 - Riverpointe
  • MBA Real Estate
  • Beverly T. Morris DDS, PC
  • Grosse Ile Hardware
  • Gibraltar Bay Alpacas
  • Westcroft Gardens
  • Public Service Credit Union
  • Hawthorne and Vine
  • Bishop's Cottage
  • Grosse Ile Pet and Garden Center


Congratulations to all of the prize winners! We had 9 prize baskets that included prizes donated from the various businesses around Grosse Ile. The winners were Carrie Mihalko, David Martz, Lincoln McKinnon, Kaitlyn Robinson, Nicole Krupa, Chelsea Rossman, Jack Armbruster, Nolan Barron, and Clayton Jacqmain.


Here are some of the things people had to say:


  • "We went into stores we had never been into before."
  • "I found stores I didn't know we had."
  • "I can't wait to win the Fortnite Loot Llama!"
  • "I have lived on Grosse Ile for 10 years and go to all sorts of things like the parades, etc. and no one would talk to me, but today all kinds of people talked to me!"
  • "This was sooooo much fun!"
  • "It got the kids outside."
  • "Ah ha! I found the answer!"
  • "I learned a LOT!"
  • "We've been wanting an event that would increase our business's foot traffic. This did exactly that!"


We look forward to making this an annual event. If you have any suggestions or would like to share pictures from this year, email us at GrosseIleKiwanis@gmail.com

If you have a kiddo in the Class of 2029, we encourage you to take this opportunity to go over all of the exciting information they can learn by just cracking the cover!
