Story by Leslie Huffman.
Cary, NC – I have fun doing my job. Mostly because I get to meet so many interesting people in the community. Most are business owners or families that love the Scavenger Hunt. But, this week, I got to hang out with the “movers & shakers” of Cary.
Here Come The Judges!
I spent the last two evenings with 16 Cary Scavenger Hunt Celebrity Judges. Believe it or not, I commanded a room filled with folks like Mayor Weinbrecht of Cary, Mayor Holcombe of Morrisville, Chief Bazemore of the Cary Police Department and Chief Cain of the Cary Fire Department and many more. I have arrived….!
All of these very distinguished folks hold prominent positions in the community and really wanted the opportunity to connect with citizens in a fun way. I truly enjoyed meeting everyone and want to thank them for all they do for our community, and for not laughing me out of the room.
