Ever wonder how fast air is moving when you blow out a candle? Kids at The Front Porch Library (SM) found out when they used a hand-held weather station to measure wind speed. This was just one of the mysteries revealed when teams — led by the intrepid FSU Circle K volunteers Arsenio, Antonio, and Elisa — completed an elaborate scavenger hunt. There were mystery items to identify, mystery smells, a search for a heart-shaped leaf, a book with a fruit on its title, and many more. In case you wondered, the peanut butter jar held 777 dried beans … and it wasn’t even full!

After the scavenger hunt, each team had to solve a riddle to reveal a clue leading to the missing cake. Fortunately, the sleuths prevailed. Special thanks to Adrian (mystery writer), Tracy (Encyclopedia Brown reader), Circle K & neighborhood volunteers, parents, and kids for making it a super-special day.
