Ox Cart medallion hunt continues

The annual medallion hunt leading up to Star Prairie's Ox Cart Days celebration is now underway.

Below is the first clue.

The medallion is on village property. Hunters will not need to destroy or deface anything to locate the medallion. The medallion will tell you who to contact if you find it.

Clues are posted in the New Richmond News weekly and on the website as well. Prize is $100 and must be claimed by 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 18.

Clue # 1

Calling all people, young and old,

It's time to embark on another search,

The Ox Cart Days medallion hunt has officially begun,

Seek your prize in the village proper

What you're searching for will not be copper.

Clue # 2

Wander to your left

It won't take much heft,

Keep along the fence

You don't need much defense.

Clue # 3

Hide & seek is my game,

Will we post your name?

The signs of Star Prairie clearly tell

I am not near a well.

Wander down the path of least resistance

You'll only go half the distance.
