Maggie Mae's Kid's Bookshop hosts scavenger hunt featuring Todd Kirnan at local businesses across town

COURTESY IMAGE: MAGGIE MAES KIDS BOOKSHOP - Spot these Mr. Gresham Waldo stickers in local businesses to win prizes. Where in the town is Mr. Gresham?

This summer Todd Kirnan and Maggie Mae's Kids Bookshop are teaming up to create a fun scavenger hunt that will take local kids to 25 local businesses across the city.

Images of Kirnan, aka Mr. Gresham, can be found dressed as the iconic children's book character Waldo, with the red and white striped shirt and black-rimmed specs, in local businesses like Sugar Cubed Cakes, Foxtrot Vintage, Whimsy Burrow and Gresham Bricks & MiniFigs.

Anyone who wants to participate in the search can pick up a "Where's Mr. Gresham?" stamp card, with names of all the participating sites, at Maggie Mae's, 43 N.W. Third St. With each Mr. Gresham sticker found, participants can get their card stamped or signed by the shop. There are also 10 Waldos in windows of businesses around downtown that aren't on the passport, which lead to extra prizes.

Collecting all the stamps lead to entry into a grand-prize drawing for Waldo books and paraphernalia.

It is free to join in the search, which lasts throughout July. For more information call 503-512-7493 or visit maggiemaesbooks.com

There will be a kickoff party at 10:30 a.m. Friday, July 1, at Maggie Mae's with Todd in attendance.
