Find Pete the Dragon

Pete the Dragon (who looks a LOT like our Technology Trainer, Pete) has been spotted flying around the Pymatuning Lake area. While we are not sure how his tiny pink wings can carry him, several local businesses assure us he has visited them.  Follow the clues posted each week and find Pete’s poster. Scan the QR Code and enter to win gift certificates to local businesses and more. (We can’t tell you what the prizes are because then you will know where Pete is … so you’ll just have to wait!) Eight winners in total. Read more…
