Throop Scavenger Hunt!
All Throop UU members and families are invited to participate in a scavenger hunt of places near and dear to Throop! During the month of May, visit Throop's much-loved locations, take photos, earn points, then submit your photos for a contest. Should you choose to enjoy this whimsy to the fullest, your efforts will be celebrated during our annual meeting on June 5th. You may even win a prize! We ask that you allow us to use your wonderful photos during our annual meeting as well. Good luck, Throopers!
