CLUE #7 - FRIDAY

It’s time to find the medallion. Did you find the twenty four letters?

Let’s go to the very first clue. You went to Grewell’s Food Store No. 2 at 1000 N 10th and looked around. Across the street south you found the letters de in the word Independence (remember I told you first de) on a Woods lumber trailer. The letter “p “is what you were looking for to find the medallion. But there is more fun to find the medallion. From the letter “P” in the alphabet count forward FIVE letters. You should be at “U”. THAT is the letter you need to find the location of the medallion. Another example, MaGee Auto Service was located at 213 W Maple, if you look north you will see B&Z Storage. From the letter “Z” in the alphabet count forward FIVE letters. You should be at “E”. That is the letter you need to find the location of the medallion. Now do the same thing with the other twenty two letters you found. One more twist to the medallion hunt, you must unscramble the letters to form the four words that will describe the location of the 2022 Neewollah Medallion. Good luck, have fun.
