Riddle me this! What is “U” shaped, a symbol of luck and usually found on an animal’s hoof? If you said a horseshoe, you are correct. You also are good at solving clues and should register for the Joliet Area Community Hospice (JACH) Derby Day Horseshoe Hunt Saturday, May 5, 2018. Beginning at 10 a.m. at Carson’s Tap House, located 823 Liberty St., Morris, IL, your team of four will decipher clues by walking to different locations in downtown Morris to collect the coveted horseshoes. On your way you will participate in physical and mental challenges. Collect all the horseshoes and be the first team back to Carson’s Tap House to be the winner.

It would not be Derby Day without a decorated hat. Join in on the fun and enter the hat contest. This inaugural friend and family scavenger hunt is presented by The Horton Group and Kurtz Ambulance ServiceoHort.
