Let the hunt begin!Posted by HEX Staff on March 15, 2019 - 9:45 pm
Spring is in the air and the flowers are in full bloom. But what is that sneaking around over there in the tall grass? Can it be a Leprechaun? It might be a wise idea to try to catch him. But be quick, no telling what kind of treasures he could give you, IF you do manage to catch him.
Come join us, and the Leprechaun, for some St. Patrick's Day fun. The REs are falling, the four-leaf clovers seem to be promising a great deal of luck, and the old prank items "Auld Sod" and the "Shillelagh Stick" are making a come-back!
