Here’s another hint: “do you have a passport?”  Now add that to the first hint of “warm sandy beaches”… What could this prize be? Any guesses? The first 5 guesses will win a Raccoon buck! Email trishreillytaylor@gmail.com with your guess!

If you just can’t possibly guess, don’t despair, details will be coming home in a flyer this week!
