Hard Hats and Heroes
April 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
he Junior League of Huntington invites families with children of all ages on for a socially distant scavenger hunt Saturday, April 24, 2021.
The Junior League of Huntington’s interactive Hard Hats and Heroes event has become a signature event, but after much consideration regarding public health, hosting the event in its traditional form didn’t seem appropriate. However, the Junior League of Huntington’s Board was unanimous in wanting to host an event that highlighted the work that our frontline heroes do and the important way they are working to ensure the safety of the Greater Huntington community.
“The Junior League of Huntington presents this event as a Thank You to our Community Heroes and Frontline workers – police, fire, EMS, doctors, nurses and medical workers, the water and sanitation departments… the list goes on,” said President, Christy Houvouras. “While we want to offer an activity for the children of the community to participate in, we also want to shine light on the work – and workers – that make our community such a great place to live.”
Families will participate in an outdoor scavenger hunt across the Greater Huntington Area to visit different community service, civic, and private organizations which help to keep our communities running. At a drive-thru pickup point, families can purchase their ticket, including an activity book and a passport for the event. Families will be encouraged to take their own route based on clues to each location where truck operators will be on hand to demonstrate how their vehicles work and explain what they do. Check out a fire engine, sanitation truck, aerial bucket truck, dump truck, and much more! Find out why they are such an important part of our community.
The Junior League of Huntington is empowering women by building better communities. It is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action, education, and leadership of trained volunteers. We serve the community through projects aimed at fighting human trafficking, helping women gain selfsufficiency, and providing free healthcare for the uninsured and underinsured.
