Congratulations go out to Thomas Cole, Jr. of Mayville, New York, who was the winner of the $250.00 cash prize in the 2014 Medallion Treasure Hunt held in conjunction with the President’s Day Weekend Winter Festival. He found the medallion after the eighth clue was released in Lincoln’s hat at the Lincoln-Bedell statues in Westfield, NY.
Mr. Cole was recognized at the Festival on Saturday, February 15th, where he posed with Lincoln impersonator Jeff Bloomquist of Jamestown NY. Special thanks go out to Taylor Lehman and her grandmother Janet Henderson, for again writing some great treasure hunt clues. This year this event also featured prize drawings each week. The Maple Inn at Chautauqua, Chautauqua Suites in Mayville, Webb’s Year Round Resort of Mayville, and Webb’s Captain’s Table Restaurant in Mayville donated the prize packages. Winners were Danette Doud of Mayville, Anthony Corcoran of Dunkirk, Amy Cross of Jamestown, Robert Black of Westfield, and Norm Blanchard of Westfield.
We would like to also again thank our festival sponsors. Thank you for your continuing commitment to this long-held annual winter festival.
