Local treasure hunt raises funds for food

Rita Houston and Danny McCubbins, at left, go over the rules for a coin hunt during the East Linn Treasure Seekers metal detector club’s annual campout at Community Chapel. Houston said she did not know the total amount of mony raised during the event but estimated it would be in the $4,000 to $5,000 range. The club will hold additional fund-raising events and then present a check to the Kids Food Pak program at the end of the year. About 45 people participated in the events held June 28 and June 29. They camped overnight with friends and family.
