What’s more fun than a friendly competition? To celebrate Summer being in full-swing, we’ve created a signature scavenger hunt designed to get locals and visitors out to all 5 of our cities in Roane County! We’ve randomly selected 10 must-sees in Roane County that we’d love for you to visit. All you have to do is head to each location, get a valid signature from an employee or volunteer and bring the card back in to claim your prize! Prizes begin with 5 signatures, but they get better with each additional signature! For just 5 signatures, you win a t-shirt! For 8, you get a t-shirt AND a hat. With all 10, you get a Soak In Roane prize pack ($75 value). You can print this card or come by the welcome center to pick one up anytime Monday-Friday 8:30-5. Let the signature scavenger hunt begin!
