Winner Chosen for 2nd Annual Scavenger Hunt
By Judie Holcomb-Pack
Sometimes doing something on a whim works out pretty well! That’s what our scavenger hunt winner said about deciding to enter our annual scavenger hunt contest.
Our winner,Marilyn Roseboro, was given a copy of For Seniors Only from a church member at First Waughtown Baptist, Winston-Salem, who brought copies to their Seniors & Retirees auxiliary. “I did it on a lark,” said Ms. Roseboro, who retired from Winston-Salem State University where she was the associate professor of mass communications. Since retiring, she describes herself as a “professional volunteer,” volunteering at East Forsyth Middle School, Senior Services, at the Ending Elder Abuse Walk at Triad Park, and with the youth at her church, among others places.
Finding all the scavenger hunt locations was hard enough since Ms. Roseboro is not originally from the Triad. Using her “reporter skills” from her teaching days, starting first with “what I knew for sure,” she then used Google to look for pictures that may match the ones in the scavenger hunt. Once she got started, it didn’t take her that long to identify all the locations.
Many entries were received and James Taylor, publisher of The Chronicle and For Seniors Only!, pulled the winning entry out of a basket of all the correct entries. The prizes were donated by Crafted the Art of the Taco restaurant located in Winston-Salem and Greensboro, and the Winston-Salem Dash. Ms. Roseboro is looking forward to asking a sorority sister to accompany her to dine at Crafted and go to the Dash game.
We congratulate Marilyn Roseboro and thank everyone who participated in our second annual Scavenger Hunt. Look for the third annual scavenger hunt in May 2018.
