PRINCETON — Heartland Bank’s Great Medallion Hunt begins today, Saturday.
This is the 27th 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:
It’s that time of year for the adventure to begin,
Heartland’s Great Medallion Hunt will have a new spin.
Some clues will tell you where it is not,
Please stay away from trees, bushes and flower pots.
Twenty-seven years we’ve been hiding the disc,
You won’t need to dig, climb or put yourself at risk.
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. 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. When the Medallion is found, announcements will be made on WZOE and posted to the website at www.wzoe.com as well as the Bureau County Republican’s website, www.bcrnews.com, as soon as its discovery has been confirmed.
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.
