SAULT STE. MARIE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
*************************
The Ontario Finnish Resthome Association (OFRA) and Foundation is excited to announce our Rediscover SSM with OFRA Scavenger Hunt! The hunt is in effect from Aug. 1 to Aug. 30 and will provide families with a fun, COVID-friendly activity that encourages Saultites to get out and rediscover their city!

As restrictions in our city lift, OFRA wants you to explore it! There are local businesses we haven’t been able to visit. There are places in town we haven’t been able to experience. This August, it’s time to enjoy it all over again!

There are 50 posters hidden at destinations across Sault Ste. Marie – from your favourite local restaurants, retail stores, and city landmarks. Solve the clues to find the destinations! Once a poster is found, participants will write down the unique phrases from each poster on their Destination Tracker form. The poster will also feature a QR code to scan for more information about the destination and OFRA! Click here to download clues that lead to the destinations, along with the Destination Tracker form.

Every valid Destination Code found and recorded on their Destination Tracker is an entry to win a prize from a variety of local businesses. By participating in this event, you could be the proud winners of local merchandise and valuable gift certificates. It’s a great way to support and represent the Soo!

Steps to Rediscover SSM with OFRA Scavenger Hunt

Step 1: Establish your scavenger hunt team! Team name optional but encouraged

Step 2: Go to www.ontariofinnishresthome.ca/rediscoverssm.

Step 3: Download and/or print the 50 city-wide destination clues and Destination Tracker. Every team member is encouraged to submit their own Destination Tracker.

Step 6: Write down the Destination Code on each poster beside the corresponding number on the Destination Tracker.

Step 7: Find as many posters as you can! The more posters = the more entries into the prize draws.
