NORTHUMBERLAND – The hunt is back! The Youth Cares Committee of the Northumberland Hills Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce the return of Search Party ~ A Scavenger Hunt for Health. The second annual Search Party, in support of the Northumberland Hills Hospital, will take place on Saturday, May 8th, 2010.
Search Party is a fun-filled scavenger hunt for participants of all ages.
