Sending for your info a list of the business/non-profit participants that signed up with Bethany College for the Swede Scavenger Hunt 2018 from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18. This event is a small part of a packed-to-the-gills, multi-day slate of orientation activities for new and transfer students.
The scavenger hunt kicks off at the Bethany amphitheater with a welcome from BC alum Mike Dreier of Fuqua Insurance. Then students and their upperclass leaders will head out to snag a photo with staffers in each of the following locations:
Majestic Footwork Dance Studio
The Good Merchant
The White Peacock
Small World Gallery, also hosting Lindsborg Comm Hospital
Hands of Time Gallery
Rendezvous Adventure Outfitters
Scott’s Hometown Foods
Courtyard Gallery and Bakery
Raymer Society/Red Barn Studio
First Bank Kansas
Participating businesses have been asked to provide props, backgrounds or activities that would lend themselves to memorable -- maybe even hammy -- pictures that can be hash- tagged for social media, #welcometotheborg. The best photo collected by a student as judged by Bethany College representatives will win a $100 gift certificate for shopping in Lindsborg. Students earn extra points by photographing and catching the names of BC alums in the downtown area. Let's have fun with this!
Thanks, everyone, for creating for Lindsborg this chance to interact with BC students and make them feel acknowledged.
Please note the local businesses and organizations that have joined with the Lindsborg Volunteer Fire Department in making possible tomorrow’s scheduled community water fight. That’s 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at Swensson Park. Not braggin', but just sayin’: So much more front-porch style fun happens in Lindsborg because of this kind of sponsorship.
The same can be said for Saturday night’s Lindsborg Landmark Concert at the Old Mill Bridge. Local and area sponsorships are at work, making the appearance of the marvelous band “Everyday Lights” a free family event. That's 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Mill Street and Second. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy life in The Borg. (And if you see Landmark Concert organizer Mike Dreier, give him a high five, pls.)
