[November 26, 2014]  LINCOLN - This Saturday the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Lincoln, and the Logan County Tourism Bureau will join with downtown merchants in a day of fun activities in celebration of Small Business Saturday.

The fun will begin at 9 a.m. inside the O’Donohue building located on North Kickapoo Street just a block off the downtown Square. Guests can start off the day with sweet treats and other refreshments provided by Mel-o-Cream and Kroger.

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony and a few words offered up by Mayor Keith Snyder.

Then the real fun begins. Shoppers will be able to go on a downtown scavenger hunt. When they visit participating merchants, they will be given a task (nothing too difficult). When the task is complete, they will receive their next clue as to where they should go.

Follow the clues to wherever they may lead, and then carefully “scavenge” for a porcelain watermelon. When the melon is found, present it to a sales associate inside that business for a chance to win an instant $25 gift card.

Some may win the gift cards, and some may not, but don’t stop scavenger-ing because there is more! Shoppers who collect all 10 clues and turn them into the Shop Small Headquarters (O’Donohue’s) before 2 p.m. will gain entry into a drawing for other prizes. Among those prizes will be $575 in American Express gift cards and other gift cards and prizes donated by participating businesses.

Businesses participating in this year’s event are: Beans & Such, Serendipity Stitches, By the Bean, Michael Gowin Photography, Lloyd & Luna’s Unique Boutique, New Beginnings, Prairie Years, Cherished Memories, Mary Todd’s Hallmark and MKS Jewelry.
