If you’ve been to Long Lake in recent weeks you may have seen rainbows adorning many places in town.
The 518 Rainbow Hunt has over 115,000 members in it’s Facebook Group. The group, created in March 2020 shortly after the NYS Pause orders took effect and homeschoolers were stuck at home, scared, uncertain and afraid of what would come next, volunteers decided to shine a little light, hope and rainbows on an otherwise extremely unprecedented, scary, uncertain lock-down.
Families in the 518 area code and beyond placed handmade rainbows in their windows, doors and driveways. The goal is to create a rainbow scavenger hunt for kids who are cooped up inside for most of the day.
A local Long Lake resident and parent asked businesses and the Town of Long Lake if rainbows could be placed about to include Long Lake in this effort to bring smiles, positive vibes during the Coronavirus Lock down in New York State.
As the school year winds down, and parents start to close up their zoom aps and Microsoft Teams for the year, we just wanted to make sure everyone saw the cool rainbows that were placed around Long Lake.
Spreading Rainbows, Good Vibes, & Positivity Worldwide from the 518.
