The 2016 History Hunt takes place this Saturday, April 30. This year the participants will be solving a fantasy crime which will take them up and down the Prairie River as they search for the suspects and solve “The Anatine Case.”
The History Hunt is a fundraising activity sponsored by Merrill Historical Society. “This is a fun, social way to learn more about the history of Merrill and the surrounding area,” says event co-chair Jane Francoeur. “Even if you have lived your entire life here, I guarantee you will learn something new on the History Hunt. This year our hunt focuses on the Heineman family and areas around the Prairie River. We give you the routes to follow as you search for clues to solve the fantasy crime. You don’t have to know anything about Merrill history to have a good time.”
Registration for the 2016 History Hunt is $15 a person, with a minimum team size of two persons. Prizes will be awarded for Best Team Name, Best Team Costume, and Best Team Vehicle. Numerous other raffle prizes will be given away at the After Party where the crime will be solved and refreshments will be available for purchase.
Saturday, April 30 is also the deadline for entries for the Women at Work and In Business essay contest. For complete rules and information please check the Society’s website, www.merrillhistory.org.
