It's not too late to be part of something that's lots of fun and might earn you a few bucks, too.

Last year seven teams vied to win the jackpot at Dawson County Library's annual Scavenger Hunt.

My team came in second and enjoyed a lunch at the Blue Bicycle as our prize.

First place, a bunch of young and overly zealous teenagers, beat us and won the money.

My favorite memory of the hunt was finding a dog that would let us balance a cookie on his nose, or maybe it was when we asked a complete stranger if we could sit in his pristine white convertible for a photo, or it could have been when we asked another stranger if he wouldn't marry one of us.

But my favorite memory just might have been the group hug with those overly zealous teenagers from Christ the Redeemer Church who beat us, an aging, yet highly competitive group, of Dawson County Woman's Club ladies.

Scavenger Hunts are always fun, but when they benefit a library, one of our country's most valuable resources, they almost become required entertainment.

We are so fortunate to have Dawson County Library and its hard-working, most-talented staff.

Gather a team of four overly zealous friends and just see if you can beat us this year.

The Scavenger Hunt is from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. June 13. Snacks will be provided.

Call the library at (706) 344-3690 to answer any questions or to sign up your team.
