HAWTHORNE, N.J.– The Hawthorne Chamber of Commerce and the Hawthorne Green Team have created a brand new slogan and character for this year's buy local campaign -- and there's a month-long scavenger hunt to kick it off.
We have created 'BEE Local. BEE Hawthorne!' and are proud to present the Hawthorne BEE. The Hawthorne BEE was created to represent Hawthorne’s commitment to getting the buzz around buying local and the importance of protecting the BEE’s environment. We all know BEARS love honey, so here's your chance to have customers hunt around our local shops and locations to 'Find the Hawthorne BEE.'
Residents can hunt for the Hawthorne BEE at 23 participating local businesses and locations, using a "passport" to guide their search. The six-inch-tall Hawthorne BEE will be hiding somewhere in the public part of each establishment.

When you've collected at least 20 different store stamps, return your completed passport to the Chocolate Box, Mr. Cupcakes or Sprinkles -- by July 30 at 6 p.m. All final passports must be collected at the Hawthorne Farmers' Market by July 31 at 11 a.m.
On Sunday, July 31, there will be a Hawthorne BEE Grand Celebration and prize drawing at the Hawthorne Farmers' Market at noon.
