On a warm, sunny day in November, nine families exercised their hunting skills and had a blast searching for 75 items in their community. During the Rotary Club of Bedford's Scavenger Hunt, 31 participants, including four furry family members, used creativity and strategies to earn points.
Six crews set out around Bedford, one on Cape Cod, and one in Hudson. They searched for statues and rotary signs, they reenacted the famous Beatles Abby Road album cover, and they interpreted items in their own way. Bedford Rotarian Russell Swinton said, "This was a wonderful event. Bethany and I had a terrific time!"
