Treasure Hunt

Clues for the $250 Emerson PurpleHull Pea Festival Treasure Hunt, sponsored by Peoples Bank. It is not necessary to dig or destroy property to find the treasure, which will be in a place accessible to the general public. The festival is Friday and Saturday.

7 a.m. Monday Clue

$250 dollars is on the line,

and if you find it, you will be feeling fine.

Hopefully you know the basic rules;

if not, you may be deemed a fool.

So look up, down and all around,

until this year’s treasure is found.

7 a.m. Tuesday Clue

Hopefully you caught on to the first clue.

And if you are a walker in town,

you will get this one too:

If 2 times 2 is 4

and 4 times 4 is 16,

what happened to the composite?

It seems to be missing.

7 a.m. Wednesday Clue

Pirates who volunteer are chips off the old block.

From the blessing of the peas to picking up trash,

We couldn't ask for a better flock.
