1st clue was:
"Well another year has come to pass
and the Big O celebration is here at last!
This years theme is "A Walk Through History"
and there's a treasure hiding that, for now, remains a mystery.
This medallion hunt is in year ten,
and the rules of the game were made way back when.
Only public property, you know the gig,
Within city limits and you won't need to dig."
Medallion Clue #2:
Well, it's finally Friday and the ole town is buzzin'
Time to to make plans with your friends and your cousins.
From where it's hidden you can hear children's laughter,
If you whiz right past them, you'll miss what you're after.
You've had some good luck in finding the treasure years past
But be aware this year, it just may not go quite so fast.
There's lots of area to cover and that's a must,
You may even want to talk to an old-timer you trust.
Medallion Clue #3:
I've only been around for 50+ years-a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things,
So all you get for clues are what my recollection brings.
Highlights for me were the carnival and teen dance,
But I digress, without more clues you don't have a chance!
There's signs all over town pointing the right direction,
Don't miss all the history tidbits - there's value in reflection.
1908 is when OTown incorporated,
As pit stop on the tracks to Duluth, our town was fated.
It musta been a forest, all the streets named after trees,
Maybe trains hauling lumber made that job a breeze.
Speaking of streets, we added a new one and a bridge across the highway,
With Birch, Pine and Cedar, we got Wall St and a walkway?!
Why not Poplar? There are plenty in our midst
But, they're not quite a Birch, if ya get my gist.
