First clue released in Heartland Bank’s Great Medallion Hunt

PRINCETON — Heartland Bank’s Great Medallion Hunt begins today, Saturday.

This is the 26th year for the Great Medallion Hunt. As in the past, the lucky individual(s) finding Heartland Bank’s 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.

The first clue is:

Heartland’s Great Medallion Hunt begins today,

Get a team together and get ready to play.

Our annual quest may have a new name,

But the rules haven’t changed for playing the game.

“It’s Good To Be Home” is this year’s theme,

Locating the Medallion is the seeker’s dream.

Hunters will need to decipher the clues to find the hidden medallion. The medallion is approximately 3-1/2 inches in diameter, 1/8-inch thick and has the Heartland Bank 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. 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.

Heartland Bank’s Great Medallion Hunt Committee will release clues to the Bureau County Republican and WZOE every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The goal of the Heartland Bank 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. Heartland Bank’s Great Medallion Hunt is open to everyone except families associated with Heartland Bank and Trust Co.
