Where Is Our Rabbit??

April 3rd - April 7th

We need your help finding him! Participants will be required to register for this activity and join a private Facebook Group. A daily message will be posted in the private group for you to decode in order to find out where the NRC rabbit is hiding! Each day NRC's rabbit will be hiding somewhere in Newton. He will change locations each day. Once you find him you will pick an egg from his basket. Bring this egg to the Rec Center (415 N. Poplar) and see what you've won! Only 1 egg per day per participant.
Ages: Up to 12 years
Registration Deadline: Thursday, March 30th
