NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The annual Fall Foliage Leaf hunt has begun, and the committee has released the first set of clues.

Colored paper leaves are hidden throughout the area and participants must solve the clues in order to find the leaves and win a prize.

The leaves are well hidden and the committee suggests persons search thoroughly to find them. When a leaf is found the person must sign their name on it and return it to Pedrin's Dairy Bar on Curran Highway to claim the prize. One prize per household please.

There is also a phantom leaf hunt for homebound residents. Those participating in the phantom leaf hunt must send a postcard with their name address phone number and the answer to the clue to the Peggy Oleskiewicz, 264 Sand Springs Road, Williamstown, MA 01267.

In the event of a tie, the earliest postmark will determine the winner. Only mailed postcards will be accepted.

If there are any unsolved clues a second set will be released. This event will conclude on Oct. 16; no leaves will accepted after this date. At the conclusion, answers to the clues along with the names of the winners will be announced. Prizes for the event are generously donated by area merchants.
