ON THE HUNT — Edie Giunta, 9, and her sister, Oona, 6, were the first finishers of the Great City of Beacon Scavenger Hunt, a five-week quest that sent children (and parents) all over the city seeking clues related to businesses and cultural institutions. The hunt was organized by the Recreation Department as an alternative to Camp @ the Camp, which was shuttered because of COVID-19. The first 50 finishers will receive a proclamation signed by Mayor Lee Kyriacou and the Sleuth hat worn here by Edie. (Photo provided)
