Hello friends of Copperfish Books! 

This is Waldo, your favorite bespectacled traveler and star of umpteen fabulous children's books! Once again, Punta Gorda rolled out the welcome mat for me for our Find Waldo Local scavenger hunt. I really loved hiding out in your downtown businesses and enjoyed the excitement when kids (and grown-ups) found me. And I heard that a lot of you discovered businesses that you didn't even know were there!

My party on Saturday at Copperfish was such a blast! It was great to see all the Waldo hunters and give out so many prizes! How lucky you all are to live here; what a great community you have. I hope I can come visit again next July!

– Waldo

P.S. A huge THANK YOU to all the participating downtown Punta Gorda businesses!
