Look for Waldo as a show of independents during the Summer Municipal Band Concert Series at 7:30PM Thursdays in Central Park through Aug. 17.
Bright and early on the Thursday morning prior to the salute to America concert, Waldo was spotted trying to find a good place to hide. Look for Waldo and independent friends at the weekly concerts when moderator Ann Lord promotes the sponsor of the concert, most often one of Naperville’s independents!
Then remember to find Waldo 12 times during July as you explore Naperville’s independent business community. Whenever possible, show the youngsters in your life the importance of keeping local dollars where they matter most.
Thanks for supporting the local business community north, east, west, south and throughout downtown Naperville.
Now 30 years old, Waldo returns July 1-31 to Naperville’s independent business community. Find him 12 times, collect Waldo chits, turn them into Anderson’s Bookshop, and enter the drawing to win prizes.
In other words, every player needs to get 12 marks/stamps/initials in order to come back to Anderson’s Bookshop and get the first round of prizes ($2 Book Bucks and a button) and be entered to win some of the other great prizes, explained Ginny Wehrli-Hemmeter, Events and Publicity, for Anderson’s.
