The New Paltz United Teachers are hosting a Scavenger Hunt/Race this Saturday, May 18. The event will kick off at the New Paltz Middle School at 10 a.m. and end at Upstairs on 9 Café at the New Paltz Golf Course off Huguenot Street.

According to Meri Lederer, the race will consist of teams with two to four people “solving clues, finding objects, taking pictures, doing zany activities and having a great time throughout New Paltz!” The first-place team who scores the most points in the least amount of time will win the Grand Prize of $250.

The cost of entering the event is $30, which will yield a fun-filled afternoon as well as a tee-shirt and lunch at the Café. At least one member of the team will need to have a digital or cell-phone camera. Although kids can participate, each team, according to Lederer, must have at least one adult over the age of 18.

“This event is generously being sponsored by four local businesses,” she said, “including McGillicuddy’s, Main Street Bistro, P&G’s and the Law Offices of Robert F. Rich Jr.” All of the proceeds go to the New Paltz United Teachers’ Scholarship Fund, from which selected New Paltz High School graduates will receive an award in June.
