PRINCETON — The search for Heartland Bank’s Great Medallion Hunt continues with the release of the third clue:
There’s only one way to garnish the prize,
Search high and low, keep your eyes open wide.
You won’t want to loiter, so decipher our hints,
WZOE will announce; the BCR will print.
Remember you’ll be putting your wits to the test,
Our clues will have you searching North, South, East and West.
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.
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 limit 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.
