Shamrock on the Shelf is hiding in Plymouth

Visitors to Plymouth are hoping for the luck of the Irish this month as they participate in the Shamrock on the Shelf scavenger hunt. 

The Rotary Club of Plymouth and the Plymouth Downtown Development Authority scavenger hunt began last week and will continue through March 28.  Participants can use the time frame to complete one, or up to four, routes through downtown Plymouth to receive a $25 gift card from participating merchants.  The clues also have information about the Rotary Club of Plymouth and Rotary International.

 The Rotary Foundation has committed up to $10,000 to help downtown Plymouth businesses during the pandemic.  That converts to 400 gift certificates, noted DDA Director Tony Bruscato, “a generous offer from the club to support the Plymouth community.”

Visitors can find the starting point at the Shamrock on the Shelf kiosk at the corner of Main Street and Ann Arbor Trail where they can scan one of four color QR Codes with a cell phone.  After scanning, a clue will appear to begin a trip through downtown Plymouth to find similarly colored shamrocks in stores or in storefront windows. The shamrocks will unlock another clue to the next location.  Keep following the clues and scanning the QR Codes until all eight have been found and with the eighth clue, visitors can register to receive a $25 gift card. There can only be one winner per household and the there are a total of 400 gift cards available. 

Because there are four different routes, hunters are invited to complete all four and register to receive a $25 gift card for completing each one, but again, one winner per household.
