PRINCETON — Citizens Great Medallion Hunt, sponsored by Citizens First National Bank, will begin Saturday.

This is the 24th year the hunt has been sponsored by Citizens First National Bank. As in the past, the lucky individual(s) finding Citizens’ Great Medallion will win $1,000 in Princeton Chamber gift certificates. In addition to the medallion, several other surprises have been hidden throughout the city to reward hunters for their efforts.

Hunters will need to decipher the clues to find the hidden medallion. The Medallion is 3 1/2 inches in diameter, 1/8 inch thick and has the Citizens logo on it. It will be hidden on public property within the city limits of Princeton, and in a location that WILL NOT pose any danger to searchers. Nothing needs to be broken into, dug up or torn apart to find it. The medallion is NOT hidden at City-County Park, the Bureau County Fairgrounds or at any of the local cemeteries. If you find the medallion, call the phone number that will be attached to it.

Citizens Great Medallion Hunt Committee will release clues to the Bureau County Republican and WZOE every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday beginning Saturday. Clues may also be found on the Citizens First National Bank website at www.citizens1st.com. Look under the About Us tab and click on “What’s New.”

The goal of the Citizens Great Medallion Hunt is to provide everyone the opportunity to get caught up in the spirit of the annual Homestead Festival and get it off to a great start. Citizens Great Medallion Hunt is open to everyone except families associated with Citizens First National Bank.
