Kevin Coolidge, owner of From My Shelf Books & Gifts, presents Tate Cougill, 12, and his sister Stella, 8½, of Greenfield, Indiana with their Totally Ninja Raccoon pins for turning in their free passports after visiting 10 or more Wellsboro area stores. Tate has taken part in all eight of the bookstore hunts held in July every year since 2013, according to their grandmother Shirley Fort (not shown).

To be eligible for prizes, those who have been searching for the Totally Ninja Raccoons in 22 Wellsboro area businesses during the month of July must turn in their passports no later than 6 p.m. Thursday, July 30 at From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro.

For each business where participants of all ages find the Ninja Raccoons and get their passports signed, their names will be placed on tickets representing each 'find" and put in the prize jar. "The more places participants find the raccoons, the more chances they have to win," said Kasey Coolidge, bookstore manager, organizer of this year's hunt.

"We will draw the names of the prize winners on Saturday, Aug. 1 and call them to let them know what they won," Kasey said. "Participants need not be present to win," she added. Prizes donated by participating businesses, include gift certificates and other items, a variety of books and Wellsboro Chamber bucks.

"The Ninja Party, planned for 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the bookstore on Aug. 1, is postponed until we can find a place to hold it," said Kasey.

The Ninja Raccoons are hiding now through 6 p.m. on July 30 in the following 22 Wellsboro area businesses: Café 1905 and a second location on the first floor at Dunham’s Department Store at 45 Main Street; Wild Asaph Outfitters at 71 Main Street; C.S. Sports at 81 Main Street; Peggy’s Candies & Gifts at 82 Main Street; In My Shoes at 85 Main Street; Garrison’s Men’s & Ladies Shop at 89-91 Main Street; Tioga Office Products at 96 East Avenue; Moore's Sports Center at 36 Plaza Lane in the Route 6 Wellsboro Plaza; Highland Chocolates Factory at 11724 Route 6, Charleston Township; The Farmer’s Daughters at 11719 Route 6, Charleston Township; Karen’s Country Store at 15 Main Street; Tony’s Italian Cuisine at 3 Main Street; Wellsboro House Restaurant & Brewery at 34 Charleston Street; The Frog Hut at 132 Tioga Street; Pag-Omar Farms Market & Restaurant at 222 Butler Road, Delmar Township; The Native Bagel at 1 Central Avenue; CBJ Collective Gift Shop and Piano Studio at 152 Main Street (formerly the West End Market Cafe); The Yellow Basket & Ice Cream Shop at 2744 Route 660 (on the way to the Canyon); Omi Of The Canyon gift shop and food at 4181 Route 660, near Leonard Harrison State Park; Wellsboro Mini Mall at 5 East Avenue, Suite 101; Krout’s Creations and More at 5 East Avenue, Suite 102; and host: From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue.
