The Clintonville Quest returns on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014!

The Quest is an amazing race-type scavenger hunt where teams compete to locate checkpoints, complete challenges, and race to the finish line.  The Quest is intended to be a celebration of our wonderful community.

One hundred percent of the registration fees from this event benefit the Clintonville-Beechwold Communitiy Resources Center (CRC), which offers youth, senior, family, and material assistance programs.  Please help give back to your community by participating in this fun event!

The Quest is coming to Clintonville, and the CRC will be the benfeciary!

Several local residents are organizing a scavenger hunt that will take participants to some familiar — and some not familiar — locations right here in Clintonville.

The aim is to learn some of the secrets of Clintonville, compete for great prizes, and have fun while doing it.

The Clintonville Quest will take place Saturday, Aug. 24. Much more information can be found on the group’s website, by clicking here.
