Week 4 Winner Announced! The disc was located last night in Memorial Park in Manistee. Credit goes to Rochelle Willim and Kayla Willim for locating it in the bushes to the right of the band shell in the park. Now for the clues. The park is built in honor of Manistee County Veterans, so all of the clues had some connection to various wars and the heroes who served us in them. “London bridge is falling down and Manistee was sunk.” The SS Manistee was a British steam ship that was sunk during World War II and just happened to share its name with our fair city. Other ships named Manistee have wrecked, but hopefully the reference to London Bridge made you think of London and the heroic veterans who served in that war, not to mention the air battles that threatened that city during WW2. “Tales of London, Tales of France…” was a somewhat vague reference to the many World War I Manistee veterans who are honored in the park and who would have been able to tell many stories of those places. The third clue referenced McCormick and Hyland, who were two Manistee veterans who served and died during the Civil War and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their service. Today’s clue would have been “Ring around the rosie, pockets full of poppies,” which of course references the flower that is used to honor all of our veterans. We want to take a moment to thank everyone for participating in this year’s Scavenger Hunt and to the many veterans who have served us over the years and given us the opportunity to LIVE FREE. We hope to be back next year with another Scavenger Hunt. In the mean time, the Willims are going to CHICAGO!

How it works: Every Monday in September, Filer Credit Union employees will hide the below prize disk somewhere in Manistee.  Clues as to the whereabouts of the Prize Disc will be posted on our website and on Facebook. Each day, we will post another clue that gives a slightly more specific location. When you see the disc, grab it. Don’t fight (too much…), but seriously, the prizes are worth your efforts. Bring in the disc, and we’ll give you your prize. A new disc will be placed every week. Follow us on Facebook for the best chances to win. Good hunting.
