Copper coin hidden somewhere in township
The hunt begins on Tuesday, September 25 and the best hunter will win a grand in gas. Legend has it that back in the 1800’s, a cannon was hidden in Cannon Township and has never been found to this day. The legend will be re-created in 2012. A custom coin with a cannon stamped on it has been specially designed and minted for the treasure hunt. The coin has been hidden somewhere in Cannon Township. The coin in no more than 4 feet off the ground, and is not on privately owned property.
A big change for this year is that there will be 4 parts to a clue released each week on Tuesday after 8 am. You will need all 4 parts to the clue to make up a whole clue.
Participating businesses will each have available part of the new clue per week; it will be up to the treasure hunter to visit enough businesses to get the entire clue until the coin is found. The person that finds the coin will receive $1000.00 in free gasoline. We are asking for canned food donations to support the North Kent Community Service Center this year from the treasure hunters when they pick up the clues. Each participating business will have a donation box available at their locations.
