One of our staff teams and the people they support are participating in a community wide scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt started on St Patrick’s Day; people coloured shamrocks and posted them in their windows so others going for walks could see how many shamrocks they could find. Communities all over have been extending this game and switching up what image they search for every couple days. People supported and the staff are having fun colouring and posting the pictures, as well as going for walks and looking for others.
