The Sleepy Eye Retail Association’s Pot of Gold medallion hunt is over and this year’s group of winners were the same group that found it last year.
Jeannie Ream, Jody Gollnick, Derek Fast and Gina Daly found the medallion Wednesday at approximately 1:30 p.m. on the new lookout deck at Sportsman’s Park. Last year Jeannie’s husband was present in the successful hunt while Jeannie was working. This year, the tables were turned, she helped find it while he was at work.
The group spent about three hours searching before the green puck shaped medallion was found duct taped in a bag to the decking. The group has participated in the hunt for the past 10 years.
This year the group has two extra pair of eyes helping – infants Isabella Robb and Caleb Gollnick. They will split a $100 chamber certificate.THIS POST COURTESY: Sleepy Eye Chamber of Commerce, Edward Jones, Stark Farmers Insurance, Dairy Queen, Borth Memorials, Spaeth Ford, Sleepy Eye Medical Center, First Security Agency, Seams to Fit & Tuxes 2, Sturm Funeral Home, Goettig and Ruddy Accounting, Miller Sellner, Cenex/River Region, Culligan, Arneson’s Distributing, Sleepy Eye Off-Sale, Sleepy Eye Chiropractic, Southpoint Federal Credit Union, American Family Insurance, NAPA Auto Parts, Berdan Plumbing, Sleepy Eye Aquatic Center, Sleepy Eye Camper Cabins, Stimpert Enterprises, Sleepy Eye Public School, Americana Community Bank - www.sleepyeyeonline.com
