The Abbarno family was proud to join teams from around our community for the annual Centralia College scavenger hunt to benefit the President’s Scholarship Fund through the Centralia College Foundation. Team PHAST (Peter, Holly, Antonio, and Sophia Theodora) finished right in the middle of the pack!
The Event took participants throughout the College and downtown community offering clues and hints to approximately 20 riddles. “It was a great chance for our community to visit downtown merchants and see what Centralia has to offer,” said Abbarno. “From Mediterranean food and laminate flooring on one side of town to a clothing boutique and dance studio on the other side of town. There is something for everyone.”
“I am proud of our community’s economic diversity,” added Abbarno. “Today was about raising money for our Centralia College students, shopping local to remind us to #ChooseLocalFirst, as well as friendship, family, and connecting. We were able to learn more about the history of the college, sing happy birthday to Jan Nontell at Rectangle Gallery, visit with Darin Harris at Boccata, and spend time with family and friends.”
