Scavenger hunt raised $1,000

To the editor:

The Friends of the Portage Lake District Library would like to thank all of the Houghton businesses who made our Downtown Scavenger Hunt possible through donations and sponsorships. With their help, we raised over $1,000 for library community programs. This impressively long list says a lot about the great community spirit we share in Houghton.

Thank you to: Fifth & Elm, The Print Shop, Apple Blossom Mercantile, Chassell VFW 6507 Auxiliary, Northern Michigan Land Brokers, Statewide Real Estate of Houghton, Black Ice Comics, Suomi Restaurant, Douglass House Saloon, Armando’s Restaurant, Chickadees, Victoria’s Kitchen, Amy J’s Bakery, Jim’s Foodmart, The Bookworm, Joey’s Seafood and Grill, Michigan Made, Sew Irresistible, Suomi Restaurant and Surplus Outlet.
