If you’re looking to discover some of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce’s hidden treasures, the NDG Community Council has the perfect scavenger hunt for you.
Between now and next weekend the council will be hosting a scavenger hunt to help residents learn more about the neighbourhood while also showcasing local businesses and community organizations.
“I think it’s a great opportunity,” said Crystal Charles, the owner of Honey Books on Côte Saint Luc Road.
There are 22 different tasks participants can take part in, like listing their favourite book at the neighborhood’s bookstores, or sharing photos of their favourite businesses and store owners in the area.
They can also name hidden gems they want more people to know about, the best public art in the area or even volunteer at a local community organization like The Depot Community Food Centre. The photos are being shared on Instagram and Facebook through the hashtag #tresorsNDG.
“We thought it would be fun to start on a long weekend. People are home, people aren’t travelling,” said Sharon Sweeney, a community organizer with the NDG Community Council. She wants to show some love to businesses in the area that have struggled since the pandemic.
“They’ve jumped through hoops the past two years, so we want to give something back and get people going into the stores,” Sweeney said.
