Medallion hunt to begin soon

Published 9:12 am Friday, January 27, 2017

The Albert Lea – Freeborn County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to sponsor the 8th Annual Big Freeze Medallion Hunt. The medallion hunt is a build up to the Big Freeze event scheduled for Feb. 4. The medallion itself was again created by local artist Steve Tubbs.

Medallion clues will begin Monday and continue daily through Friday or until the Medallion is found. The lucky person who finds the medallion will receive $300 in Chamber Bucks.

All clues will be published daily in the Albert Lea Tribune, both online and in print, as well as the chamber’s Facebook Page. In addition, the clues will be read on-air by local radio personalities from KATE (1450 AM), KCPI (94.9 FM), KQPR – Power 96 (96.1 FM) and KQAQ – the Country Legends (970 AM).
