Blarney Stone search begins
As St. Patrick’s Day nears, it’s time once again to search for a bit of Ireland in Bonner Springs.
The Bonner Springs Parks and Recreation Department, taking a cue from the more than 200-year-old tradition in Cork, Ireland, has hidden its own green, triangular Blarney Stone in one of its city parks.
Residents are challenged to find the magical stone that will reward them with a 10-Punch Pass to the Bonner Springs Aquatic Park for the 2012 season. Clues will be released in The Chieftain and on the City of Bonner Springs website weekly. The stone must be returned to the Community Center, 200 East Third St., to get the reward.
Clue No. 1: Spring is almost near, so this park will be filled with cheer!
