Lucky leprechaun hunt

March 13-18
We have shenanigans in our woods - the Leprechaun has been spotted and you can go seek his pot of gold! Purchase the digital clues to see if you can find him or his pot of gold somewhere on the grounds of Red Oak! The search is on from March 13-18. A small prize will be the reward for the lucky finders of this sneaky forest friend. Adults do not need to register but must accompany registrants. Cost is $8 per child. An email with a link to the clues will be emailed after 3:00 pm on March 13. Contact with questions.
